Jairo Mejia

Journalist

In a nutshell

Hi there! I am currently a Washington correspondent with the Spanish news agency Efe News. I have decided to create this website so I can showcase how a different kind of storytelling and journalism can be done with a little knowledge of coding, help from developer forums and some free time in the cold days of winter.<Coding> is fun when you get it right. If you like this stuff or you want to send me any recommedations don't hesitate and drop me an email. Saludos!
