Journalist and editor:
As a journalist, I have worked as the editor of a B2B Private Equity International magazine, and as a researcher and writer for the Sunday Times and New York Times. Other publications I have produced stories for include Reuters, the Telegraph, the Arts Newspaper and Time Out.
Having reported on everything from business corruption, to mental health, supermodels and the royal family, I can turn my hand to an impressive variety of subjects. However, I specialise in writing about institutional investment, Asia, and the arts, as well as in producing stories that require in-depth, accurate research.
Before being shortlisted for the Anthony Howard Award for political journalism in 2014 for my research into prison privatisation and policy, I was also an art, theatre and fashion writer for Time Out Beijing and Blouin Artinfo. I have written a chapter on water investment for a published 500-page investment guide, written and edited a Time Out annual education guide, covered fashion for the Sunday Times Style magazine and am adept at writing for online and print publication.
I have also been building up my wider copywriting and marketing experience in the last two years.
Projects I have taken on include writing attractive, clean copy for business websites and brochures, packed with beautiful descriptions and effective calls to action. My blogs for professionals, published on their websites and LinkedIn, have had fantastic feedback. My product descriptions are tight, well researched and intended to spark action in customers.
I have also written press releases, marketing emails, catalogue introductions and descriptive texts for private art galleries.
At PEI, I worked closely with the marketing and events teams, always proof reading and sometimes writing promotional material with their excellent support.
I have also written plenty of content for several charity websites, including blogs and a policy paper on mental health for a women's charity where I am a volunteer.
I grew up in Spain and have lived in China. I hugely enjoy translation work from Spanish or Chinese into English.
Spanish: Professionally, I have translated a short children's book (unpublished) and summer camp brochure from Spanish. I am completely bilingual in Spanish and English, and visit my family in Madrid often.
Chinese: I now live in London, but after graduating from Oxford with a BA in Chinese in 2010, I kicked off my journalistic career in Beijing. Having spent three years working in China, and then several more in London for the Sunday Times foreign desk, I have a breadth of experience translating articles, technical materials and more.
