High Mountain Guide IFMGA. Passionate about mountain sports, cartography and the physical geography of the Pyrenees. I have worked as a mountain guide in the Pyrenees and the Alps since 1997. Also, I am professor of the official training course of mountain guides since 2004. I have been part of the teaching team of the ETEVA, in Aran Valley, and of the INS of La Pobla de Segur. In addition, I am an adjunct professor in the Department of Geography at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

On the other hand, I also worked at the Antarctic Base Juan Carlos I of the CSIC from 2006 to 2008 performing support and security tasks in different scientific projects, on glaciology, permafrost, meteorology, climatology, limnology, cartography and telecommunications. In addition, during the summer of 2010 I collaborated in the measurement and placement of the main geodesic vertices of the most important peaks of the Pyrenees of Lérida within the framework of the Project 100 Summits of the then Cartographic Institute of Catalonia.

On the other hand, I am always super motivated to teach, but also, to learn. I have the great good fortune to have a great time in the mountains, both in very technical and difficult activities, as well as in recreational and family activities. My extensive training, experience and versatility, between the sporting aspect and the cultural and geographical aspect, allows me to make great ascents, environmental and cultural interpretation, study and drafting of trail projects, as well as lectures and conferences for general and specialized public.
