“Choose your words with wisdom”.- Richard Stallman.
This phrase may be oblivious but it’s also one of the greatest lessons a young journalist could learn. And I did in 2012, when I had the chance to meet Mr. Stallman during his visit to Mexico City, my natal town.
Why is that a big lesson? I truly believe that we, as journalists, must pursue the truth but also be wise to communicate it, in order to contribute to the progress of our societies.
You may have noticed by now, I’m a Mexican journalist currently based in Mexico City. Let me tell you a little bit more about myself.
I started my career in 2008 at the news desk of Infosel Financiero, just a couple of weeks before Lehman Brothers went to bankruptcy. Oh, what an exciting time for doing Financial journalism! The roads took me to the TV network Canal Once, and Grupo Reforma newspapers. Currently I’m reporting for El Economista, one of the most important newspapers specialized in Economy, Finance and Business information.
Since 2011, I’ve been covering IT industry, digital economy, startups, cyber-policy, cyber-security, cyber-espionage and all cyber-stuff. I wrote for the magazines Magis and Forbes, and for the website Anticobertura. I also published an article in the book “Patterns of Commoning“.
During 2015-2016, I studied a Master Degree in Foreign Policy Journalism in the Pompeu Fabra University, and during a year (October 2015-September 2016), I was correspondent for El Economista in Spain, where covered the general elections, the catalan independence, and businesses stories of Spanish companies that have presence in Mexico, like Iberdrola, Telefonica and Abengoa.
I was also an intern for The Huffington Post in Spain, based in Madrid, where I had the chance to have a deeper knowledge in digital and new media.
Feel free to hang around and share your thoughts with me. You are very welcome to my website.
