When I was 14 years old, I went to the summit of the Mulhacén, in Sierra Nevada, with the person to whom I owe this great passion, Julián García. This little experience opened up an unknown and desired world for me. I had been wanting to join for many years to one of those adventures that Julián told me when I had the opportunity to meet him. From there a style of

life was imposed within me, a mixture of respect, admiration and passion through the mountains that has made all my life has revolved around them ...

I have been fortunate and privileged to visit a good part of the world's mountains, ascending them and respecting the cultures that were at their feet. Alps, Pyrenees, Sierra Nevada, Andes, Lapland, Himalayas, Pamir, Atlas, Greenland, Siberia ... all these places they make me feel very small in the face of its immense beauty while being genuinely happy and in peace.

I have trained as a mountain guide and as a wilderness guide.

And finally I made a one hundred and eighty degree change in my professional life and decided to dedicate myself to looking at people's eyes when I guided them to the places that I had fallen in love with before.

Then something else came, I saw how the lifestyle that the mountains had taught me was a model that guided my life on the asphalt and that he could help other people reconnect with their most basic and authentic being. This I must recognize it has been a gift for me and now I am looking forward to sharing this vision and this philosophy of life with you.

Thank you for visiting this window to my little world and if the mountains are your dream

I will be happy to guide you.
