About me

Born in Mexico, raised in Italy, over the past +7 years I worked as an independent creative producer for artists, theatre companies, and arts organisations in Italy, India and Singapore.

My work has been focused on understanding cultures and empowering local identities through the performing arts while nurturing networks and opportunities across borders.

I hold an MSc in Cultural Economics & Management from the Bologna University (GIOCA) and a BSc in International Relations & Asian Studies from the University of Pavia.

I am also Postgraduate Vocational Training Master in International Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid, held by The International Red Cross at Universidad Jaume I Valencia, Spain and I volunteered for international cooperation projects in Tunisia and Palestine.
