I live in Buenos Aires. I’m a content producer, storyteller, writer, translator, journalist, book editor… I have my fingers in many pies. I’ve been working in the culture and entertainment industry for more than ten years.
I’m a self-starter, curious, restless, autonomous, responsible, creative, agile and organized.
I’m interested in new technologies, in the written word as a collective language and in experimental writing as it relates to social media. I love making lists.
Almost all of my experimental writing can be seen in the Art Lab section. In a past life, I used to be a blogger under the pen name Ana Wu.
I published a book in 2011 called Red Social (Social Network). Some say the things I do are linked to the field of digital literature. In 2019, I published Dedicatorias (Book dedications).
In 2014, I created and produced a podcast with friends called Recital. We invited different writers to read aloud a story they considered original and not widely known. Thanks to it, we discovered lots of new stories.
In 2015, I took part in an Art Lab at CheLA and created a video called Mala Sangre.
I believe in work with no frontiers. I’m passionate about languages and working with other countries and cultures. I’m bilingual (Spanish-English). My family is Italian but I learned the Italian language at school (my grandparents spoke Sicilian).
I am trained in public speaking as I was part of the debating team in high school and took part in debates each Saturday.
I graduated in Communication Studies at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA) university (yes, I did finish the major) and took an English teacher training course at Lenguas Vivas. In 2015, I went to Scotland on a postgraduate scholarship to study British literature.
I started working as a journalist at 21 for the Buenos Aires Herald English-language newspaper. I have also worked for Perfil, NatGeo, Newsweek, and Les Inrocks.

Between 2013 and 2018, I worked as a book editor for Penguin Random House, where I published more than a hundred fiction and non fiction books.
Currently, I work for Viacom International Media Networks as a content analysis manager. My professional profile and education can be seen in detail here.
I love learning new things and meeting people. I’m addicted to courses and workshops. I’ve taken many literature courses (you can see the list on this website) but I’ve also taken took cooking lessons, yoga lessons, dancing lessons, swimming lessons and even diving lessons.
I love singing and playing guitar. If I were born again, I’d be a musician.
