I am an Environmental Biologist as well as a Sustainability Engineering. Since 2005 I've developed, participated and coordinated several activities and projects in sustainability business as well as in golf industry. I alternated periods of free-lance consulting with periods working in TECONMA (contracting company) and the Canary Islands Golf Federation.
My love for the game, along with the development of several sustainable projects in golf facilities, led me to create my own company specializing in sustainable management of golf courses, cgolfsostenible. In 2013 I founded golfindustria.es, currently the preferred source of information for many Spanish golf industry decision makers.
I have a solid experience as a communicator, both in traditional media and social media, having published more than sixty articles in different Spanish and European magazines, as well as participated in radio and television shows.
