José Luis Jiménez (Huelva, 1981) began life as a correspondent early in his birthplace Ayamonte, writing for various provincial newspapers. His degree in Journalism was from the Nebrija University in Madrid, but he has spent most of his professional life in Galicia, working with the Madrid-based daily newspaper ABC since 2003, and now as official correspondent in the region for this leading publication founded in 1903. He writes both on politics and cultural affairs. He also contributes articles and interviews to the musical pages of ABC Cultural. His passion for the world of opera, instilled in him by his father, has also led to him working with specialist publications such as Ópera Actual, for which he mainly covers opera events in La Coruña. He is also the author of numerous programs to accompany performances by the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, and for the Amigos de la Ópera in La Coruña.
