About Me

Born Mexico City in the late 1970’s and moved by chance to London in 2001.

I studied Humanities at the Universidad de las Americas-Puebla (UDLA) and graduated with a dissertation in comparative literature on the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges and the German Michael Ende. Sounds weird but they did have stuff in common.

I hold a Diploma in Literature in English and MA in Cultural and Critical Studies from Birkbeck College, University of London.

I currently work for Daunt Books as publicist and have been part of the amazing teams at Gallic Books, And Other Stories, Reaktion Books and the Wellcome Collection.

I am particularly interested in Latin American contemporary literature, historical novels and fiction in translation. I am also an absolute cinema lover.
