I started blogging a long time ago in the AOL Journals community. I began blogging because I enjoy exploring new technologies and communities. I blogged to share, discover, and process. I’ve had many different blogs over the years across a variety of platforms. I’ve brought them all together here.
I was born in Havana, Cuba in 1977. I immigrated with my family to the United States on the Mariel boatlift in 1980 and grew up in Miami. In 2012, I moved to Melbourne, Australia to live with my Aussie partner. I blog a lot about being an expat and have been featured on Blog Expat, Expat Focus, Expats Blog, InterNations, Expat Arrivals, and Globehunters.
My education is in English, Women’s Studies, and Religious Studies. I’m passionate about culture, spirituality, and social justice. I’m also a big lover of social media and online communities, and my day job is in these social web spaces. I’ve worked for clients big and small, corporate, NGO, and not-for-profits, and also do consulting work, training, and public speaking.
I’m a voracious reader. I enjoy the classics, Latin American literature, and literary fiction. I write quite a lot and some of it has appeared online at unlikely places like realestate.com.au and PR Daily. I’m also working on a novel.
