About me

I am…. A digital native. A young professional seeking to find new opportunities. An explorer; I’m extremely curious and I love learning new things. A traveler. A leader though also a team player.

I believe I’ve learned a lot throughout the years and that I’m prepared for bigger challenges. I’ve studied my Bachelors degree of Advertising and Public Relations at Universitat Ramon Llull (Blanquerna) and my Master of Arts of Advertising and Design at the University of Leeds. And I’ve also traveled around the world to learn about other cultures.

I’m currently working in eDreams ODIGEO and I’ve worked at LEWIS PR Barcelona and London, ASM, Never Alone/Happy Startups Factory (a startup company that unfortunately ended up closing), oDesk and websites like Sleeping in airports (Twitter and Instagram), Marisdeluxe (SMM and SEO) and Ladymaternity (SEO, SMM and content-creation). I’ve specialized in social media, working with design, strategy and community management. I also have experience with account management with clients like Logitech, Renfe and Avanade.

I also have a digital magazine Silence where I write every week since 2013 and work on its SEO and social networks. I’ve also been working for a non-profit organization called Publicitarios Implicados since 2009 that specializes in preparing and developing communication plans and campaigns for small NGO’s.
