In 2018 I founded MGL with the aim of working in urban planning in the Balearic Islands from a local perspective. Today, from Palma, I am professionally developing plans and projects from a territorial perspective, municipal land use and zoning planning, landscape projects and public space execution in collaboration with various teams. With my knowledge in urban planning and having participated in European projects, I am also working to open up dialogue processes by developing processes of dialogue and co-creation with citizens.

I have combined work both in the private sector and in the public administration. Since 2016, I specialized in general and strategic urbanism, most recently in the Department of Urban Resilience of Barcelona City Council (2018-2020) and before that in the General Plan Office of Palma City Council (2016-2017). Previously, I worked at the Urban Strategies studio (2015-2016) in Toronto and at the Jonet-Llop-Pastor office in Barcelona (2013-2015). 

I was co-founder and I am coordinator of the Jane's Walk Palma's movement since 2016 and a member of the board of the Palma XXI association since 2018.
