Bio:

I started my career in videogames after obtaining an MBA degree in Shanghai (China), at the Chine Europe International Business School. From working in consulting and international trade, I moved to work in game, first as Project Manager Lead at Art Coding, an art outsourcing firm in Shanghai. After, I moved to Virtuos, where I continued working in outsourcing as Production Director. Later, I moved to Zynga Beijing, where I worked as Executive Producer, starting the move from Social games to Mobile games, and working in some of the biggest franchises of the company, like CityVille. I left China 4 years ago, to start a new adventure as Lead Producer, Head of Product Management and finally Head of Tencent Publishing at Miniclip, in Lisbon, Portugal. Currently, and after Tencent investment in Miniclip, I work closely with both companies to establish a publishing pipeline.
