As storyteller since 2004 and Official Catalonia Tour Guide  since 2010, I enjoy telling both real and fictional stories. I believe that my two professions go hand in hand and like walking together.

Through stories we can bring faraway places closer to us.

As tour guide and traveler I practice the philosophy of Slow Tourism. It lets us appreciate everyday life, be surprised by the unknown and to revisit the city, always finding something new.

I studied History of Art and Medieval History at the University of Valladolid, my home town, and completed studies in History of Art at the University of La Sapienza in Roma, Italy.

I have also lived in Cape Town, South Africa, and in a small village called El Burgo de Osma in Soria. This has taught me to value the beauty everywhere and to discover how fun and rewarding it is to adapt yourself to different rhythms and habits.

I have lived in Barcelona since 1999, the city that has became my home and where I love living and working.

As storyteller I have told stories in many places: museums, festivals, marathons, schools and libraries. These include Caixaforum, CCCB in (Barcelona); Fundación Jiménez Arellano and the Book village of Urueña (Valladolid) and in the National Gallery The Annex, Iziko Museum (Cape Town, South Africa).

I took part of the Project Entreciutats in the network of Barcelona public libraries; in the activity Tants contes, tans mons in Caixaforum, Barcelona, and in the events to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the publishing house Círculo de Lectores.

As tour guide I work with schools, agencies and individuals.

At the moment, I am working at Àgora Serveis Culturals as a museum educator and tour guide.
