I specialize in: - Creative production and programming of events. - Curation of multidisciplinary art shows and web content. - Discovering and supporting emerging talent. - Budget management and contract negotiation. - Client liaison, tenant management, staff and suppliers coordination. - Creating infrastructures for the interface between startups and corporate organizations. - Strategic space usage and planning, office fit-out and interior conceptualization. In addition to the work I have been developing for different companies I have also created my own projects such as Cosmicmegabrain and XLWAVE.
