My Writing Start
At the age of seven, my family swapped island life on Puerto Rico for stateside living in the Northern Virginia area. Back then, I only spoke Spanish so learning to read, write, and speak English became an immediate priority. Though learning English fundamentals took a year or two, I’ve since spent a lifetime expanding my creativity, proficiency, and mastery. As a passionate enthusiast now writing nonfiction and memoir, I enjoy pairing words and crafting phrases that catapult ideas, inspire interest, and stir hearts.
A love of language
Learning English inspired a lifelong interest for language. I went on to learn French, German, and a pinch of Korean. And because of my Spanish language roots, I can understand *some* Italian and Portuguese as well.
Communications & design
My love of language led to me towards a marketing design and communications career where I wrote for traditional and digital campaigns and designed content, identities, and products/apps for brands.
Now I write (& design) for me
After decades of authoring content and designing messages for brands, I’m now — after years of wanting to write for myself — finally pursuing some of my own publishing projects.
