Pilar Mera

Spanish journalist and web designer


My name is Pilar Mera, but everybody calls me Pi. I am 35 and I live in Galicia, Spain. I became a journalist at the USC University... and then the Internet turned me into a geek :) Now I work as a freelancer front-end developer and web designer, specialized in WordPress and Twitter Bootstrap.

Experience & Education

Journalism Degree

2000-2004. University of Santiago de Compostela usc.es


2004-2010. Newspaper La Opinón de A Coruña laopinioncoruna.es

I wrote hundreds of articles about science, nature, tech and Galician society and politics at this journal from A Coruña. I wrote both in Spanish and Galician languages. Some of my best articles are available at decrecementofeliz.contently.com.


2007-2013. Pi-Tododepende.com

I was one of the first Galician bloggers with this online diary, where I talked about the Internet, geeky tricks, movies, and many other interests of mine. The blog, written in Galician, is temporary down.

Press Officer

2010-2014. Airapro Producións airapro.com

After six years writing in the journal, I started working in this audiovisual and music company from Carral (A Coruña), which produces comedy TV shows and represents actors and musicians from Galicia. I managed all kind of content linked to the artists and the company, like press releases, corporate texts and bios, fliers, brochures, and many other copywriting duties. It was here where I started working and learning web design and development.

Nowadays I work as a full-time freelancer, designing, translating and writing for both people and companies all over the world, under the personal brand Pi Comunicación. Many of my clients come from freelancing platforms like Elance, Nubelo, Upwork, etc.
