    Dear friends.

    Medellin is calling...

    Following a serious car accident, it was time to quit my job and London life - 14 months later I have fallen completely in love with Medellin and have purchased a property in Laureles.

    Just a few minutes walk from quiky little cafe's such as Achiote, Saludpan and Naturalia. It's an 8 bedroom property (all ensuite) with a terrace that looks out onto the street, a nice communal area and a roof terrace.
    I'm starting from scratch so anyone with expertise in the following areas, please get in touch:

    -Wix design
    -Graphic design
    -Marketing/Branding/Social Media/SEO
    -Website design
    -Content lovers
    -Teaching Spanish

    My background is in the third sector - I have created a charity in the UK eight years ago, and then worked for a global blood cancer organisation, as a Senior Manager, for 5 years. I'd love to work alongside someone with a similiar passion as I'm looking at creating something to support disadvantaged youths in Colombia. Get in touch if you have a big heart and big dreams.

    Get in touch about potential dates and any further questions.

    Take care.
