About me
Sharing stories has been a constant in my professional career. A passion that has taken different forms throughout the more than ten years I lived in Hong Kong and Beijing. First, as an international correspondent for Spanish and international media and later as an expert in communication and cross-cultural project management in Asia and Europe. The exposure to different Asian cultures and lifestyles nurtured my passion for exploring creativity, identity and self-expression beyond the confines of communication. This experiences brought me closer to the worlds of dance and movement. Currently, I live in London and I focus my professional activity on cultural diversity, identity, self-expression and the concept of third culture through writing, master classes at universities, talks, workshops and fitness and productivity programs. I dream of a future of sustainable innovation where all communities have space to use their voice and co-create alternative futures.
