Biografía

 

I chose communications as my profession. I graduated with a degree in Journalism from the University of Malaga (1995–1999). For my final project I chose film, which is one of my passions. I enjoy learning, I’m energetic, curious and continually studying and training. Some of the highlights of my training have been, a Masters of Television Presenting (ICA-2004, Seville, Spain) and a Masters in Documentary Filmmaking at the EICTV (Film School of San Antonio de Baños, Cuba, 2011). My Masters in Documentary Filmmaking was taught by Belkis Vega in a magical place called “The School of All Worlds” and was an amazing experience!

At 18, I got in front of a camera for the first time on local television in Malaga. At 21, I went to Madrid with the style and fashion magazine that I created in college. I had written down all the addresses of the magazines that I wanted to work at. My excitement fueled me to go door to door asking for a job and in the end it paid off. Rosa Capitel, then director of art for Elle magazine, liked my determination and gave me an internship. Two months later they hired me and I moved to Madrid as junior graphic designer for Hachette Filipachhi. Without realizing it my life had changed. My professional career had begun. I had moved out of my “comfort zone” and magical things would soon occur.

After my internship at Hachette Filipachhi, I worked for four years as assistant and later head of wardrobe design in television, movies, advertising and fashion. After finishing my masters in Seville, I continued to work in television but this time as a reporter. I have worked for the television channels T5, Tve-1, Tve-2, Canal Cultura and Canal Sur and magazines such as ‘Esta Mañana,’ ‘Las mañanas de la 1’ and ‘Mira La Vida.’ I have also worked in evening television programs such as “El Buscador de Historias’ and in the latest audio and video formats such as ‘Inquietos.’

In 2011, I moved to Miami to increase my knowledge, to grow and learn more about the world. It was there where the director of Venevisíon, Tito Rojas, introduced me to the world of audiovisual. While in Mexico, I worked for Televisa Mexico and as a stylist for international actresses. At the end of 2011, I moved to London with the idea of improving my English language skills.  In London I worked promoting International film festivals such as LMF and LSFF, collaborating with the cultural affairs ambassador. I also wrote for the Spanish newspaper in London and continued to develop my role as stylist working for LFW (London Fashion Week) among other places.

In 2013, while in London, I received an offer to be the assistant wardrobe stylist in the film ‘Alles Inkusive.’ by the German director Doris Dörren. This prompted me to go back to my homeland of Spain. Back in Spain, I returned to television working for Canal Sur as a reporter and freelance stylist.

Working in different cities and different countries with people of many different backgrounds has helped me to grow personally and professionally. I’ve had the opportunity to learn from amazing people along the way. They have taught me to question things, make decisions, take risks, observe, learn and apply the knowledge. I have improved technique, adapted to many situations and made life long relationships. Above all, I have enhanced and developed my communication skills, empathy, listening abilities and creativity. We are social beings and we need communication to connect our life stories.
