personal info
my story

I was born in Madrid, Spain, and I’m delighted to have grown up in a city so full of people, places to see and interesting stories. Anyway, I have also lived in several locations within the UK and San Jose, Costa Rica. Having lived in such different cultures has made me open minded person.

Restless mind, passionate about agile methodologies, good products, design and photography.

I consider myself an open, creative and innovative person with a passion for design and with great leadership skills. I am an achiever.

I studied Computer Science at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and I am an Executive MBA from the EOI Business School.

I've focused my career to help companies to improve the way they work through Agile methodologies as an Agile Coach and I've helped to create great products as a Product Manager.

education
Certified Scrum Product Owner
  • Scrum Alliance
  • USA

Certified Scrum Product Owner® professionals have been taught the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that enable them to fulfill the role of Product Owner on a Scrum team. CSPOs are typically the individuals who are closest to the "business side" of the project. They are charged by the organization to "get the product out" and are expected to do the best possible job of satisfying all the stakeholders. CSPOs maintain the product backlog and ensure that everyone knows the priorities.

Certified Scrum Master
  • Scrum Alliance
  • USA

A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

Executive Master on Business Administration

  • Madrid

Competitive professionals should know and take advantage of technology, understand and be commitment to the social and sustainable economy and view the world as a single global market. All this while bearing in mind that they are expected to know how to be entrepreneurial both inside and outside their own company.
