He desarrollado la mayor parte de mi carrera profesional en la producción de series documentales para las televisiones públicas de Valencia y Castilla–La Mancha. En 2008 creé mi propia productora audiovisual en la que realicé vídeos corporativos y series documentales sobre temas de sociedad, cultura y medio-ambiente.
