José is a journalist, communications and marketing professional from Venezuela. In addition to working in communications, José is completing a Master in Theological Studies at Regis College in Toronto. He is also coordinator of a ministry at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Toronto, and has more than 10 years of experience in working with technology startups.

She is also an editor for several blogs such as GradLife McGill and TPL Moms.
