The Organizer: Szilvi

Szilvi Carballo is a born-and-raised Budapest. Her maximalist and perfectionist sides became manifest in her childhood, though at that time she did not express them in cooking and organising, rather managed her kindergarten and school mates. It was clear to everybody that this little girl had a special talent in organising. She likes the process of making ideas real. It might be a trip, a family lunch or just a coffee with friends in the afternoon.

She started her career as a receptionist in a hotel, and then continued as a personal assistant at a multi company. Then she worked at an international law firm which made her even more flawless in her talent. At Los Carballo she is the one who guides Latin temperament within the boundaries of European standards. And guess what? Even this Latin temperament is not able to upset her nerves trained in the urban jungle.
