About 

I am an architect from Spain with solid experience amongst others in exhibition design, interiors and housing. I have worked both on my own as well as in collaboration with a number of architecture firms and companies. The majority of projects that I have worked on have included all stages of development, from the initial concept definition, to coordination and completion.

Over the past year, I have had the fortunate opportunity of working as an Exhibition Design Trainee at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, allowing me to be immersed daily in the inner working of a major American museum. During my time at the Guggenheim, I was in charge of the exhibition titled “Learning Through Art 2013” that was showed until the middle of June.

I possess a strong passion and appreciation for design. I am an organized, hardworking and creative person with the ability to multi-task. I work well both individually and as part of a team. My great attention to detail and ability to spot and solve problems helps to ensure that every project I work on is done accurately and to the highest possible standard. I am proficient in AutoCAD, Rhino, Grasshopper, Photoshop, Illustrator and In Design. 

I am seeking a position preferly in an exhibition design or interior firm. I think I can bring an unique blend of skills due to my education and professional experience .
