Since 2004, I have been working as a freelance journalist writing for newspapers in Colombia. I have also created various blogs where I have elaborated all my ideas while improving my writing skills significantly. Being a native Spanish speaker, I mainly write in Spanish. However, lately I am also writing in English in order to capture a broader audience of readers and share my thoughts in a more global way (To see samples of my work, check out the link "Freelance Journalist/Writer" on the right menu bar of this CV).
