Integration matters to marketers, interaction matters to people.
I like to think my projects blur the boundaries between digital, film and PR from a strong strategic, conversational and media-agnostic thinking. I firmly believe this is the key to modern communications, though still today I get asked to label myself more often than I expected.
I've been lucky to work for some of the world's top integrated agencies (Wieden & Kennedy, AMV BBDO, JWT Amsterdam, The Martin Agency...) digital specialists such as Poke; plus some brands (Reebok) and start-ups (RadioWolfgang.com, Lust Films).
My school was DoubleYou, Spain's top digital shop, where I worked for 6 years. First in Barcelona, where I became Creative Director at the age of 26, and later in Madrid, where at 28 they asked me to open a new office.
In 2011 I quitted the agency for the thrill of a gap year. I travelled a lot, read a lot and worked on a personal transmedia porn project with a famous feminist porn director — Yes, transmedia porn.
Within 15 years of experience, the projects I have worked on have collected more than 100 awards, including 2 Grand Prix plus an Innovation Lion at Cannes.
I'm not a big fan of festivals, though a part of me feels proud of having achieved most of these as a freelancer.
From time to time, you will see me judging at festivals (The New York Festivals, The Lovies, The Webbys...) and lecturing on creativity and innovation at several masterships and seminars across Europe.
