My name is Terrence Romero. I live in America and I am thinking about moving to the Yucatan. I do know some Spanish, but just the basics. I am fluent in English, but I am
eager and excited to learn to speak Spanish fluently.
I am looking for a job. I operate a online media company. I can operate it anywhere. Below is my resume. I hope my skills match jobs in the Yucatan. It looks like a lovely place to raise a family.
