Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

No, I am from Barcelona, Spain. I moved here to study at the Berklee College of Music in 2016 and I stayed working afterwards!

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

Mar Fayos Project was born to offer jazz fusion concerts to select audiences both locally and internationally. In addition, we offer other musical services, such as arranging and vocal recording for other projects and companies, as well as voice lessons and the selling of the first album of original music published in 2020 and exclusive merchandising.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

We make sure our clients are always listened and taken cared of throughout the entire time we work together, since the very first conversation until the day of the concert, or the delivery of a recording, lesson or product. Professionalism, work ethics, attention to detail, efficiency and a mix of expertise and passion for what we do define us.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

There is one piece of advice I got recently that really resonated with me: ''Don't let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning''. I personally try to remember it daily and use it as an encouragement to keep working and moving forward.

What is your favorite book?

The Carrot Seed by Ruth Kraus.

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

Organization is key! I always bring with me an agenda where I handwrite every task I have to do, when I do have time to work on it and its due date, so that I make sure I am as productive as I can be without forgetting anything important, and giving myself time to disconnect without feeling guilty!

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying it in your career or business?

I am thankful to be able to work daily doing what I love with people I care about. That is something I don't take for granted, specially after experiencing the hardships that the Covid-19 crisis created for artists.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don't not worry that much about the future, trust yourself a bit more and be patient.

How do you enjoy your free time?

I truly enjoy discovering new artists in concert venues, theaters, museums and crafts markets. I also love to write and read in complete silence, sharing valuable time and experiences with my family and friends - and, if there is great food involved, even better-, and to travel and lose myself in the streets. I am also crazy about animals and the protection of nature, and commit time to work with non-profits that really matter to me.

What is something that not many people know about you?

Recently I became really passionate about visual arts and space designing, and that brought me to start working on photography and collage, and to care more about interior designing that makes me feel better where I work and live, such as wabi sabi.
