IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia
I first visited the Andes when I was 14 years old, and that's when the love of nature and Mountains started. Since then the "Call of the Hills" has not diluted and I dedicated my life to work as a mountain guide.
Proper training started in 1984 with the aid of the German government and the German Alpine Club (DAV). Then a group of Bolivians were certified as a mountain guide’s instructors. After many years of negotiation, Bolivia succeeded in becoming a member of the International Mountain Guides Association (IMGA, UIAGM, IVBV) in 2005. That's when I achieved the international Certification.
I also studied Film Making and hold a Masters degree on Script Writing and worked on some documentary projects with the BBC.
I lead trekking and climbing groups in Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina and Chile and speak Spanish, English and French.
