Normally, I am an engineer; but, due to my experiences in events management (mainly in festivals and concerts), I decided to continue my career in this field abroad. I moved to Barcelona last year and I’ve graduated from Master in Events Management here. This year, I'll start a new master in Music Events Management and now, looking for a part-time job or internship opportunity to start immediately.
