Co-Founder and COO of SoundStorming.


Tell us about your career and how it all started?

It started around 2016. My husband and co-founder Arnau plays the guitar. He was always jamming at home and sending his riffs to his friends via text or email and the process of bouncing song ideas with friends was slow, boring and disengaging. He told me that there should be something out there that would help musicians on the creative process. We started to look and we couldn't find anything and SOUNDSTORMING was born. He's a global creative director for Apple and I have an MA in international marketing and advertising. So we started to work as a team. I'm the head of Product Development and Business Operations. I already built my photography business from the ground up so when it comes to starting a business I know my way around. After 2 years of working on it, we finally launched our beta. The app is available on the Apple Store and for the US market for now.

What does sisterhood mean to you?

Helping women without judgment.

What's your personal mantra?

Keep going.

What is your superpower?

My tenacity.

Tell us about women that inspired you and your female role models.

Any women who had an idea and tried it until the end. Women who fight for what they believe inspire me the most.

What would be your advice for women who are building careers in your industry?

Don’t do it alone. Share the journey with somebody who understands your vision and complements you. You will get further working in a team. And, when you think it’s not happening or that this is too difficult, just keep

moving. Because what you are thinking, all your competitors are thinking the same, so now is the time

to push!

One piece of advice for your 18 year old self?

Don’t worry, you will do great in life.
