I was born (1984) in a small town along the eucalyptus-scented northwestern coast of Spain, but I was raised in Madrid, where I graduated in International Economics and Development. I also studied in The Netherlands and Cuba. After a transformation within myself, and encouraged by my fascination with the conflicted existence of the human being, I started pursuing photography and visual storytelling.
