Born in Madrid in 1991, it soon awakens on me an interest to know different social and cultural realities. This will suppose that during my training at the University Rey Juan Carlos, where I study a Double Degree in Journalism and Media Studies, I decided to specialize in the international arena, with two exchanges of studies in Poland and Argentina.

After passing through the newsrooms of daily 20minutes and El Periodico de Catalunya, my work as journalist has focused on documentary and investigative reports, mainly dealing humanitarian issues, but also international politics and anthropological research. I combine work as written journalist with photographic reports. I have specialized in the practice of photojournalism, with a Postgrade in Photojournalism at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and several training workshops.

My work has been published in media such as Al Jazeera, The Guardian, The Atlantic, De Groene Amsterdammer, El Mundo, El Pais, Eldiario.es, El Periódico, 20Minutos, BBC, Deutsche Welle TV, The World PIR, Antena 3, TVE, La Sexta or Cadena SER.
