I am a communications' lover with a joint degree in Hispanic Philology and Audiovisual Communication.

Throughout my seven years of professional experience in Communication, Marketing and
Events, I have had a chance to contribute to various fields of work. Eventually, the realization
that, at any given day, ‘the purpose of your work’ trumps ‘the nature of your work’, led me to
discover the field of science outreach.
