Elena has been writing for a living since 2006. A double major in English and Spanish, with an M.D. in European Studies, she stumbled into online media by accident, after a 2-year trial run as a teaching assistant at the university she had graduated from.

As a journalist, she has covered a wide range of topics, from cars, celebrity culture, film, music, health & nutrition, and techy stuff. She also did “behind the scenes” work as proofreader and editor-in-chief on several projects.

Her passions include all of the above, and she counts as the most rewarding part of the day the feedback and engagement with the readers. Her work has been published on Softpedia, InOut and, most recently, autoevolution.
