About Me

I'm from A Coruña, a beautiful city in Galicia (Northwest of Spain). I live in Barcelona. I was a creative kid, always writing, drawing, and imagining weird stuff, and I'm still like that. I love to learn. I studied filmmaking and new media, and I've attended hundreds of workshops. The first time that I made money was writing visual poetry and my first job was as a content designer at a time when that even wasn't a job —they called me web designer. Oh, the dot-com bubble…

Nowadays I work as a content manager, I write, and I create films. You can check my artistic work at null66913. I'm also studing a Bachelor's Degree in Multimedia. I'm passionate about UX Writing, but I'm open to other roles. I love creating digital products that are useful, simple, and beautiful and I'm very aware of issues such as inclusivity and diversity. You can read me at my UX writing blog lauxcritora. If you have a great job for me or just want to say hi, I'm here: blanca[at]blancarego.com.
