After several years working for Multinational Companies in different areas (Engineering, Business Development, Operation Management and Sales), I am working as General Manager in a local public Company, owned by the Government of the region of Navarre.

– It delivers programming, communication, fundraising and management services to Baluarte Foundation, responsible for Baluarte Auditorium Cultural Seasons, Filmoteca de Navarra programs and Navarra Film Commission.
