Born in 1978 in Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona), although leaving in Andorra (Teruel). Currently he works as a fire watch in a forest tower in Andorra (Teruel).

The opportunity to live much of his childhood in a typical rural environment, with nature at the gates of his house, little by little forged his passion for the natural environment, especially for wildlife. The excellent documentary of Dr. Felix Rodriguez de la Fuente and the great British naturalist Sir David Attenborough marked him greatly during this stage of his life.

At 16 years old became for the first time with a camera, namely a Cosina with Samyang 500 mm catadioptric objective, the results were really disappointing.
Today continues to make the most of their photos in the same places that ran during childhood and adolescence. "I always thought that it is not necessary to travel to the ends of the earth to immortalize magical and spectacular moments, as the achievement of a good photograph is the result of passion, effort and experience, regardless of where it is performed."

Currently my images are published by different magazines (Superfoto Digital, Green Teruel ...) and editorials. According to the author, the publication of an article or photograph is the culmination and reward for many days, weeks and even months of hard work and dedication.

He is a member of ASAFONA (Aragonese Association of Nature Photographers), collaborator of Felix Rodriguez de la Fuente Foundation and the Association of Rio Martin Cultural Park.
