meet me

¡Hola! I'm Belén, an art director from the South of Spain and a living proof that not all Spaniards know how to dance flamenco. 

As the daughter of merchants, I learned at the tender age of five just how hard it is to sell painted shells and other trinkets without a great marketing campaign. Fifteen years later, I moved to San Francisco to attend Miami Ad School with the goal of making up for my childhood slump in seashell sales.

From there, I followed my career to London and Prague before landing at Ogilvy New York where I proudly worked on The Refugee Nation Project. Nowadays, you can find me spreading my wings at Droga5.

In my spare time, I enjoy instructing non-Spaniards in how to make real paella (no, it does not contain chorizo).
