Gwen is originally from New York City and has been living in Madrid for over 20 years. I started my professional career in the book industry, in a variety of areas from marketing and sales, foreign rights, acquisition, and finally as an editor, developing over a dozen series. Several years ago I quit my publishing job and went into business for myself in the online world, with various businesses: a bilingual dating site, a video-based marketing site for Spain and Spanish businesses and, finally, working with independent filmmakers on their marketing and distribution campaigns. With my sister, Angela, I co-founded a consultancy that creates and implements marketing and outreach campaigns for filmmakers and other content creators. I teach video production at Syracuse University in Madrid, and social media management at Berklee College of Music, on their Valencia, Spain campus. I’m fluent in Spanish and French, and have a working knowledge of Catalan and Italian.
