Since very early I started to work in hotels and tried all the departments in it. At 23 I helped in the opening of a hotel, as an assistant manager, having become a Director afterwards. During my career I have always supported my company in different challenges as well as opening and reopening hotels. Nowadays I work at the company headquarters as Hospitality Central Management Coordinator.  Another interest is related to technological innovation and digital marketing which, through internet, made me an updated self-taught about these issues. Besides that, I like to travel, to see the world, to have a good dinner and a good wine, to socialize, specially with friends and family. I live by the sea coast, which is very important to me.
