BIO: I was working as an Equity research analyst for 5 years between Spain and Portugal during one of the worst economic and macro moments of the history of Europe (more). Then I decided to follow the dream of coming to Asia. I have been living in Beijing for over year studying Mandarin because I have always been attracted to the Chinese culture, and as a way to differentiate my career.
CURRENTLY: I moved to HK several weeks ago where I am looking for new job opportunities. I am really interested in Corporate Development or Investor Relations areas, though I am open to other challenging sector opportunities. My Chinese level is quite advanced (HSK5) and I continue studying every day. I am native in Spanish and can also speak fluent English and Portuguese (more).
THE BLOG: The main purposes of “Dos gatos en Asia” is: i) to show the life of an mandarin student in Beijing, the good, the bad and the incredible moments; ii) discover the behind the scenes of Hong Kong apart from the skyline and the banking industry, iii) some insights about China, its economy and architecture. Moreover, I also try to share my tips and materials of Chinese learning. I am also part of the biggest Social Media in Spanish about China, Chinalati, as an active blogger.
The REASON why I write in Spanish, and not in English is just my contribution to this language. Spanish has c50m more native speakers than English (total of c400m vs c 350m of English Speakers), representing more than 6% of the Worlwide population, just behind mandarin Chinese. despite it is becoming increasingly popular (mainly by the influence in the US) there is still a long way to go to place this language on the important position it deserves.
REQUESTS?: If you are interested in my experience, you are learning Chinese, you want to talk about business, or you want me to write about some particular issue, do contact me!
