About the guide

When I was young, I played soccer until I discovered mountains and climbing, and it became my passion. I graduated in telecommunications engineering (image and sound) and I worked for more than 20 years as a documentary producer and director, until I decided to become an AEGM mountain and climbing guide. In 2014, a double dream came true: I made a documentary about a Himalaya expedition and climbed Manaslu (8.163m). Documentaries and climbing have allowed me to travel a lot, see the world, make good friends, and meet interesting people. I love to teach and work as a climbing guide. I have a lot of experience and know Barcelona, Montserrat, and Catalonia like the palm of my hand.
