the world's smartest travel social network
An alumnus of Georgetown University's School of Languages and Linguistics, Cuba-born José Balido, also known as Paul Balido, has written for both travel and entertainment media since 1987.
On the travel side, he has worked primarily with Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel and
Diversion magazines, both of which have also published his photography, as well as the New York Post.
On the entertainment side, he has written scripts for daytime television programs such as All My Children, Ryan's Hope, One Life to Live, and ECTV's European soap, Riviera. More recently, he executive-produced and wrote the story for Sony Pictures Mexico's acclaimed box-office hit Niñas Mal.
Completely bilingual in English and Spanish, José also speaks French and Italian fluently,
communicates in Czech, can wiggle his way through German and Portuguese, and after all these years can still startle the staff at Chinese restaurants with his Mandarin.
Currently he is president of Tripatini.com, a position he loves, as it pulls together all his eclectic interests, as well as a principal of the social-media management company EnLinea Media and director of the Americas team of social media company Tinkle España, and a regular contributor to the Spanish- and English-language blogs of Iberia Airlines.
