What’s a typical day for you at Seven League?
It is a very dynamic environment, so not sure there’s anything that qualifies as typical, but on a daily basis I can expect to learn a lot about international and local football events around the world in order to write about it in different languages, engaging our target audience through social media, while also having the opportunity to get involved in interesting conversations with people all around the world.
What’s the best thing about your job?
Learning something new every day in a fast-paced environment where I am constantly challenged and my abilities are put to the test. Also, being surrounded by people I admire and who push me to be better at what I do.
Favourite future tech?
Travelling at the speed of light and Hologram Facetime.
The Fifth Element (I just love Luc Besson)
Favourite arcade game?
Dance stage fusion.
Sports positions played?
What we call in Latin-America the 12th man, AKA, a Fan – mainly because I’m certain that Salsa Casino doesn’t qualify as a sport.
I wish I’d…
Been a backup dancer on a Broadway Show
