About me
I am a journalist, a photographer and an International Relations and African Studies master graduated at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
During my entire career as a Journalist, I have always strived to stay close to the tangible world, the world of ideas turned into good practices and initiatives. That is why I always try to be on the field, reporting from the outside world where the stories are.
At one point this mindset drove my attention to Western Sahara, a region where a forgotten conflict has been developing for more than 30 years, and where no other Brazilian journalist had been before. This unique experience gave birth to the project Neither peace nor war: Three decades of conflict in Western Sahara ( that culminated in the publication of a book and a multimedia documentary in Brazil.
Throughout this project I became even more involved with issues related to human rights, poverty, conflicts, immigration and other contemporary problems that are severely evident in developing countries.
I could turn this learning experience into practice in two more opportunities: first, when I was invited to collaborate with a book about immigration in Italy (Forbidden Entrance: stories of immigration in Lampedusa Island) that was published in Brazil; secondly, when I started to work in the communication department of Paz con Dignidad, a non-governmental Spanish organization. Currently I am part of its editorial counsel and make collaborations as a journalist and researcher.
