From starting as a lawyer in Spain, I followed my passion into the Performing Arts and haven't looked back since. I work internationally as a Director, Producer, Puppeteer and Facilitator across different disciplines including puppetry, shadow theatre and physical theatre.
I’ve been part of the creative and production teams of Told by an Idiot, Little Soldier, 2Theatre, 'The Lion King Musical' , The Arcola Theatre, Blind Summit, Vertebra Theatre, Total Insight Theatre, Producciones Yllana and more recently La Tartana.
In 2014 I created Around The Glove, producing and directing work that have been supported so far by the Little Angel Theatre, Care UK, Arts Council of England and l'Institut de la Marionnette and have collaborated with other companies such as Dotted Line Theatre and the Canadian Company La Pire Espèce, as part of the Artist International Development Fund by the British Council.
I studied a M.B.A on Arts Management at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid & Santillana Formación and I recently graduated at the Curious School of Puppetry.
I have boundless energy, and am excellent at bringing people together with my organisational skills, ability to think practically and creatively and generation of ideas. I am always on the look out for new and interesting projects and am excited about collaboration.
