News, thoughts and other bits from a journalist and aspiring media scholar


I love to read and write.

I could stop there, but if you must know a bit more about me, here is the long version: I was born and raised in Colombia in the turbulent and glorious 1980s, and moved to Canada in 2004 to pursue a master’s degree in journalism. After many ups and downs in the pursuit of a journalism career, I became a researcher, a communications advisor, a writer, a mom of two daughters and a pretty decent skier. Now I live in the nation’s capital and, to keep things interesting, I became a doctoral student at the University of Ottawa’s Department of Communication in the fall of 2016.
