I have always been fascinated by Latin American affairs. I’ve decided to record my thoughts on social/economic/political issues on this blog as a way to stir up discussions on the region. I approach this blog with an “academic” mentality: I truly believe that the value of research/reading cannot be underestimated in constructing policies and opinions. As such, you’ll see that I have inserted hyperlinks throughout all my blog posts.
While I write about Latin America, I’m inclined to write about El Salvador because of my heritage: I am the son of two hard-working Salvadoran immigrants. I am based in Ottawa, Canada.
I write for Ottawa’s Eco Latino, a local newspaper devoted to Latin American affairs in the community.
I have a M.A. in Communication from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. My thesis analyzed the historical development of telecommunication policies and services in Central America (with a specific focus on El Salvador) from the mid-1800s to 2013, and how these policies have addressed the digital divide. If you’re interested in public policies and the role of international institutions in the development of these policies, I invite you to take a quick peek at my thesis here. I worked under the supervision of Dr. Dwayne Winseck.
Enjoy your stay! If you have any thoughts or ideas you would like to share, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
