About me

 

I’m Interactive Creative Director, specialized in digital media, design and communications. I have developed professional activities in New York, London, Stockholm and Valencia, working together with people from very different cultural and professional backgrounds. Passionate about the use of technology for the defense of human rights, I have launched innovative advocacy projects such as Listen to Help –the world’s first global fundraising campaign on Spotify, which was shared even by Spotify’s founder, Daniel Ek–; and Meanwhile in Brazil –a visual newsfeed that contrasted daily on-pitch action with protests in the streets during the 2014 World Cup–. Both projects attracted the attention of the media around the world. In 2012 I founded Workether, one of the first technology coworking space in Spain, where I hosted events for Mozilla, Wikimedia, Startup Weekend, Red Bull and Microsoft, amongst others. Previously, as an alumni of BBH London and Hyper Island (“The Digital Harvard” – Robert Schwartz, Global Creative President, TBWA), I designed advertising campaigns for clients such as Google, Audi, British Airways and Virgin Media, working with industry awarded professionals.
