Architect since 2011 from the University of Seville, I just finished my Masters in Advanced Architectural Design at the School of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid. During my years at the University I also studied for one year at the Sint-Lucas Architectuur in Brussels, thanks to an Erasmus awarded scholarship based on academic merits. 

In 2011-2012 I lived in Vienna, where I worked as an intern at Rüdiger Lainer & Partner, developing Urban and Architecture projects and apartment renovations, dealing habitually with clients. 

In the last year, I've been simultaneously working on my Masters Degree (projects design and research) and working at José María Sánchez García Architecture studio, where I participated in Architecture projects and competitions and coordinated some of them as a team leader. As my Final Master Thesis, I developed a research work tutored by Emilio Tuñón, about the different illumination techniques that Le Corbusier used to lighten the houses that he designed and furnished in the XXth century. 

Since 2012, I've been co-managing a blog/magazine online about Design, Architecture, Fashion, Music and other cultural events called The Lemon Pear, which was awarded by the newspaper 20minutos as the best blog in the "blogosphere". Right now, we're working on a complete design renovation of the blog to improve its appearance and handling. 

I'm passionate about Architecture, and also about exploring other areas such as Interior, Furniture and Lighting design and even Graphic and Web design. My commitment to work is total and my learning, continuous and fast.
