    About me

    During a decade I have built a relevant career as an arts manager, with a high interest in curatorial and cultural marketing projects. My career journey has given me the opportunity to work at an international level; with public bodies, private companies and non-profit organizations in different fields and levels of involvement. In this way, I have created a strong profile that allows me to combine a managerial know-how with a hands-on expertise at planning, implementing and delivering high - quality projects, events and exhibitions that support creativity and raise cultural awareness in daily life.

    Additional Information

    My career journey started in 2008 as part of a public body in my home city as Communication and Press Manager moving towards the public museums and cultural institutions area as Exhibitions Manager. Afterwards, I moved to the area of private and independent organizations within the creative industries as Publications and Project Manager arriving to my current context, which is an entrepreneurial experience developing my own cultural and creative projects. In every role and organisation I have worked for, my main responsibilities involve curatorship, project management, budgeting, event production, planning and implementing communication and public relation strategies.
