About 

I am an architect with 5 years of professional experience in New York and 2 years in Spain. I graduated in 2013 with a MS Advanced Architectural Design (AAD) degree from Columbia University, and in 2011 with an Architecture Degree from ETSAB-UPC Barcelona (5 years + thesis). 

Regarding my professional development, working in NYC has refined my design skills, improved my project management capabilities and extended my technical knowledge. I have worked on all building phases and in urban planning, architectural and interior design projects. From my previous experience in Spain, I would like to highlight that I worked in two projects awarded with the First Prize in a National Competition.
