About me
I have 15 years experience across creativity, production and account management. I shape and execute projects from start to finish. From concepts and consumer journeys to on-site coordination during live events, and everything in between. I’ve got strong experience communicating at all levels and leading delivery, on time and budget, of brand launches, activations, festivals, roadshows, corporate, on-trade experiential events and B2B. Clients include: Heineken (Blind Pig Cider, Old Mout, Desperados), Activision, John Lewis, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Reebok, Universal, Paramount, Coca-Cola, and Weber, among others. I speak five languages: Spanish and English (fluent), Italian, French and German (intermediate).
