El Punt Avui
Asia-Pacific Press Correspondent, Since January 2020
Starting this new post as a press correspondent in Asia-Pacific I found myself involved in the most important health crisis in the last century. At first the pandemic afflicted China, then Asia and after the whole globe. I have been reporting about this move but also I covered about cultural and social issues. Freelance journalism, especially as a foreign correspondent, is stressful, expensive and nerve-wracking but the enthusiasm for work well done is my commitment to provide the best and most reliable information to our readers.

A big business start small and it’s best value is people who are working with. I’ve heard somewhere that if you don’t try to build your own dream, someone will hire you to help build other people’s dreams, and this is totally true. Communication at it’s best with the best from New York to Tokyo passing by Barcelona, Brussels and Tallinn. I always said that to establish a good communication first step means listening, understanding and most important is hearing what isn’t said.
