Describe working for OptiCommerce in 3 words:
Challenging – Learning – Adapting

Favourite movie?
Mmm… I think is Persepolis… I really loved “Elle” as well

Favourite city?
Bilbao (Basque Country, North Spain), where I studied at the University. I had so much fun there, made great friends and I think Bilbao is where I would like to live in the future.

Things you like to do for fun? 
Hanging out with friends, going to gigs, reading comics and printing designs using silkscreen.

What do you like best about working for OptiCommerce?
I like the team that I work with – that’s definitely the best part. I think we are getting along with each other really well and that makes solving any obstacle much easier. We are a powerful team with various expertise and all compliment each other’s skillsets well.

How did you get into the design industry?
I was interested on graphic design since I started to study Marketing and PR at University. I took every subject relating to design, photography, video camera, creativity. During the summer, I started working at a local newspaper/publishing house and I really loved the vibe. The more I learned the more I wanted to know so I decided to continue my education just focusing on graphic design. That is why I studied my Master Degree in Graphic and Web Design.

Pizza or burgers?
I can’t decide… But I want a burger now.

If you could describe your life as a movie title, what would it be?
Woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown

If money was no object, what would you be doing and where would you live?
I would like to be travelling until I get exhausted and then I would move back to Spain, where I live and where I want to live.
