About me

Born in Granada in Southern Spain only a few kilometers from Sierra Nevada National Park, the second highest mountain range in Western Europe only behind the Alps. I have always had a close affinity with sports and nature.
Passionate about all things two­-wheeled, I have travelled about 200.000 on a BMW Off Road Adventure Motorbike. In 2010, I set off on a solo journey passing through 12 countries and 11.500 Km of distance travelled. (europa­en­moto.blogspot.com)
In 2008, I rediscovered my passion for biking (lost during my teenage years for motorbiking) and from then on one could say that I haven’t got off the bike since.
My other great childhood passion was designing, which is the field I have studied and always worked in.
From 2013 onwards, I got to unite both passions by doing my first project associated with the world of biking. This signalled a before and after because I had discovered my true vocation and I have decided to dedicate my professional career to the amazing world of biking.
