I’ve been involved in marketing for11 years, and in digital for 10 years; it was in 2006 when I started experimenting with social networking sites, blogs and online Marketing.
Regarding my background, I am a graduate in business and sociology from the University of Manchester. In 2008, I studied a postgraduate course in Marketing and e-commerce at Fundesem Business School in Alicante; in 2009 I obtained a Master´s degree in Marketing management focused partly on Social Media and Marketing/Communication 2.0, also at Fundesem Business School. After that, the Business School granted me a scholarship for a Master’s degree extension in online marketing and new media in the United States, to be more exact at the University of Central Arkansas, University of Miami and Georgia Tech.
Why this Blog?
As my career as marketing & digital adviser keeps growing globally and I drew the lines of what I believe is the marketing re-evolution: Human Media. I just launched this website. This is the outcome of some years of marketing and media study in what I believe is its re-evolution: Human Media, which I want to share with you.
Reaching the highest standards of professionalism through my values and principles: determination, commitment, imagination, freedom, strategic choice and empowerment. Meanwhile, I remain irreverent, thoughtful and optimistic about life and change.
My job is reflecting the change, inspiration, and disruption into people. I care about human interactions this is why I make marketing, the social web, and the Internet collide with human nature, emotions, feelings, and relationships.
My work at IG is both inspiring, rewarding and eye-opening while I keep it disruptive and intense. I often say that we cannot possibly become “gurus” or experts of any medium that evolve faster than the ability to master it and the only function of a “guru” is make you see that you need no “guru.” I work globally with brands, mid-sized organizations and marketing/media agencies to bridge the gap between, human relationships and the resulting interactions, business objectives and social web strategies. Once the data is collected and analyzed, once internal/external conversations are transcribed, dissected and turned into actions, you start to see opportunities to bring people, departments, business and thinking together. The work then becomes about recognizing new opportunities, direction, and the change necessary to create alignment toward new directions, so we can create revolutionaries and revolutions that can change the game.
I work globally as a principal at IG – Empowering People, Business and Communities. Professional speaker and Marketing, Digital & Business Transformation advisor.
I am Focused on raising businesses’ brand awareness, expanding their reach and creating a resonance between brands and communities, beyond traditional communication channels and marketing practices.

Human business interactions are my base for building long-lasting relationships between brands and communities, granting them with an original and non-intrusive communication medium, with real feedback and results.
