Website | @queridapatricia

As the Editorial Director, International Digital Content at Barnes and Noble’s Digital Group, I am in charge of the team working on acquisition of international digital content. I also handle the relations with international corporations, publishers, cultural and governmental agencies. Previously, I was the Merchandising Manager in charge of eBooks, Nonfiction printed Books, and Libros en español at Barnes &, where I launched both the eBooks Store and the Libros en español online division, for which I was also the Buyer.

I grew up in Buenos Aires, where I earned a degree in Communication Sciences and a Masters in Journalism, and went from reporter to senior editor in newspapers, magazines, TV news, and websites. In New York, I got a masters in Publishing at NYU, and became a book, ecommerce & digital business person. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Brendan Borrell, and two formerly stray cats named Moses Katzestein and Hormiguita.
