A bit more about us:
Co-Founder & COO
Born and raised in Soria, Spain, I soon realized that staying in a small city all my life was not an option. Multi-passionate at heart, I graduated in Economics at Complutense University in Madrid while working part-time on the operational side of live marketing events. Part of my degree was passed in France where I met my partner and discovered online poker. We moved together to Malta where I started working at Betfair as an Outbound Sales Team Leader managing a large international team. At this point, my passion for travelling and discovering different cultures was growing inside and screaming: "Do something about it"; so we decided to move to one of the most multicultural cities in world; Singapore. I took an Account Manager position in the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Corporate and Exhibitions) industry working for a company called Pacific World Meetings & Events. But something was still missing, and I became more and more confident about becoming an entrepreneur: I quitted my job, co-founded MakeYourLifeAGame with my partner and started working on Dish Out. I run the Operations and manage Social Media & Content Strategy.
Co-Founder & CEO
I was born and grew up in Paris, France. I am passionate about innovative ideas, fun stories and any sort of games.I like music, playing guitar with my homeboys, getting up at 3 in the morning to watch my football team (Paris Saint Germain baby), playing poker, travel and have good fun with my friends. When I graduated in Business and Management at Reims Management School in 2008, I had no idea what career I wanted to pursue. By chance, life brought me to Malta where I started working for an online betting company during the poker boom in 2008. It was a great experience for me where I developed creative & analytical skills in an international environement. After a couple of years at Betfair, we decided to move to Singapore where I joined a fantastic digital agency called VML Qais which introduced me to a new world: I fell in love with digital strategy, business development, UX, design, online media and technology. With this fruitful experience, I decided to take a leap of faith, co-founded MakeYourLifeAGame with my partner and we started developing a mobile application called Dish Out.
