Why work with Cristina?

I use travel to educate and inspire others to have a unique experience and live more meaningfully.

Background. Journalist. PR professional. Marketing coordinator. TV Production. Social Media Freelancer.

Experience. Having been on all sides of the spectrum, I have unique insight into what brands look for and what consumers want. I know how to work with brands to strategize campaign plans, convey the brand message, create buzz, and empower consumers to act.

Engagement. I’m highly active on social media and, as an online content producer, I offer a different kind of voice that is personal, inspiring, informative, and accessible. I offer a more raw experience for readers, genuine recommendations, and real world connections than traditional journalism and marketing can offer.

ROI. I regularly receive reader emails, inquiries and booking requests about the accommodations, activities, tours and places I review.
