I have more than ten years of professional experience in different roles in the media sector. I started as a media production assistant, later moved to tasks of music promoter, writer, web editor and social media manager. Most recently, I’ve been focusing on online video, mainly YouTube, and its potential to engage with audiences that stopped consuming traditional media. I was born and raised in Barcelona (Spain), followed my studies in Spain, Canada or Belgium.
I’ve been writer and editor for the indie music radio scannerFM, the travel blog Erasmus en Flandes or the international organisation Casa Asia; I’ve managed social media channels for the beer brand Estrella Damm and the travel website Culture Trip and, in March 2016, I joined the boutique video network Magnetic, where I manage and optimise YouTube channels for different clients, mainly in the music industry. I’m currently working at LaMagnética, an agency that provides digital strategies based on data analysis. Feel free to check out my Linkedin or contact me for details.
