About Me

Please, read my profile carefully before sending your request!

CURRENT MISSION

Working to get rid of society's limiting paradigms and doing things I care about every day

ABOUT ME

Born and raised in (next to) Barcelona, getting to know people from totally different backgrounds, cultures and corners has been the most enriching experience in my life. A few years ago I decided to quit my job and become a freelancer, doing something absolutely different where I had no previous experience. It was a mess at the beginning, but eventually it kind of worked out and now I'm able to earn my living doing things I enjoy by organizing events & conferences. I enjoy having a conversation while having a drink or a tasty meals, listening to live music, attending exhibitions, wandering around, hiking...

Being on CS saying I'm open-minded, easy-going or love travelling is redundant, right? ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Helping others and being at my best every day!

COUCH REQUESTS

If you are sending over a couch request please start your message by letting me know the last country you visited, the last book you read and the last concert you went to ;)
