After working for an international manufacturer where she acquired solid technical training, she consolidated her lighting design experience at Architectural Lighting Solutions (ALS) where she participated in the design and execution of internationally recognised projects.
Since 2008, she combines her professional activity as independent architectural lighting designer for permanent and ephemeral projects with an intense educational activity. She co-directs the Lighting Design Master course at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid since 2008 and has been workshop head for a number of student’s workshops around the world.
She currently holds the position of Secretary at the Spanish Lighting Designers Association board (APDI), where she actively contributes with her work to increase the culture of light and the recognition of the Lighting Designer profession. She lives and works in Madrid, Spain.
