About Me


The world of the Cultural industries (economy of the arts)


I’m a sports addict, and I love music, languages and arts. Half athlete (Pole vaulting and decathlon), half musician (guitar and piano)! I’m creative and entrepreneurial, always trying to learn at least one small thing every day. I grew up by the sea, High school and University in the valley between the mountains in the capital of Mexico. Study in Montreal (Canada) and Amsterdam (the Netherlands), and now Montpellier France.


Study as you were going to live for ever; live as you were going to die tomorrow!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have travel a lot, in my home country and in the world, and I have had always the great interest in developing first aid skills, and I did not knew why, but, after my 20 birthday, I have been always in the right place in the right time to help people in car accidents, hiking injuries, even my own family members in foreign countries from the accident place to the hospital translation for the doctors.
Don’t be surprise if I care to much for my Swiss pocket knife, if I carry it with me every where, is because the Universe just gives me a lot o f opportunity to help.
I’m making a book of all those stories; as soon as I can I will publish them for you.

Teach, Learn, Share

I’m very interested in the knowledge of Music, I teach guitar and also Spanish in my free time, and if there is something worth sharing is that should not focus on music theory, but in the correct technique, playing the guitar is much like sports, first you need to get your fingers strong and coordinated before learning a lot of theory, there is no point on reading music that you can not play, don’t you think?
