I'm a 41 year-old Canadian, traveling across South America, teaching English and writing. I have a bachelor degree and 15 years of experience in corporate telecommunications. For the last five years, I've been providing written content for websites, magazines and newspapers and I have been performing Spanish/English translations for both the IDB and my regional Chamber of Commerce. I'm also an entrepreneur. I owned a high-end language coaching firm in El Salvador which I sold for a profit in 2014 and am currently the co-owner of Barranquilla Life, an online, news-media publication in Northern Colombia. I value my reputation as a professional who provides only first-rate services. I am available for one-off jobs plus both short and long-term assignments. Reach out to me via chat - I'd love to hear from you. Talk to you soon.. Michael

Barranquilla Life is an English-language news magazine with a mission of establishing Barranquilla as THE place for living and working in the Caribbean. Our subscriber base is comprised primarily of foreigners both domestic and international in addition to expats already living in the city. As English-language media in Colombia, we are also focused on engaging citizens interested in improving their English skills and to that end, we are partnering with leading language schools and universities.
