My passion is to create truly beautiful experiences using the power of storytelling, artful thinking and technology.

I’m a unique blend of creative and intellectual qualities, a passionate, innovative and meticulous scientist turned writer, director and producer of extraordinary range.

I have created premium content that has helped brands gain new customers and retain existing ones by giving people a better experience than the most beautiful ad could deliver: stories that relate to the things they care most about. I have done it making complex topics accessible and visually captivating to a general audience and with a voice of trust, in collaboration with prestigious institutions such as MIT, Harvard, Stanford, The White House and the World Economic Forum.

I added filmmaking to my curriculum in 2015 when the Spanish Radio and TV Corporation aired the first two episodes of Roman Engineering, an eight-episodes documentary series for TV that explains the rich legacy of innovation and invention of the Roman civilization. The series was first in Spain to include an educational App, videos of virtual and augmented reality as well as interactive websites to enrich the experience of the viewers. It earned multiple awards in International Film & TV Festivals for its educational value, script, special effects and cinematography.

In 2013 I developed and curated a worldwide video channel for Yahoo! including short films, animations and educational videos about science. My debut as content producer and director was on TV. I co-created and was science director of Tres14, a weekly popular-science show for the Spanish Radio and TV Corporation broadcast throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Previously, I worked as talent curator and scriptwriter in Redes, the pioneer TV show to share scientific knowledge in Spain and in the Hispanic world.

I have delivered presentations and participated in panels at events throughout Europe at leading institutions such as the EuroScience Foundation and the Royal Institution of Great Britain in London. I have been considered a role model for the future generations. I was invited to deliver a TEDx talk to young people about how to effectively navigate the new career landscape and I was selected by a committee including Their Majesties the King and the Queen of Spain to speak at Impulsa Forum to a selection of bright young people on entrepreneurship and creativity.

I began my career researching the mechanisms that underlie prion diseases, a family of rare, progressive, neurodegenerative disorders, at the Center for Applied Medical Research in Pamplona, Spain. I hold a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Navarra and a M.A in Communications from the Pompeu Fabra University.

I have received more than 30 awards and recognitions for my career in TV and digital media.
