I am a passionate Mountain biker and am fortunate enough to have worked with several companies in the content marketing sector that share the same vision for the sport that I do. I travel around the world as part of my job, bringing back fantastic tales of adventure through photos and videos.


I took up carpentry as my profession, which led to Interior Design where I discovered my fascination with graphic design. If you are passionate about what you do in life, then you'll find success in those pursuits.


When I was younger I spent more evenings working on old cars than I did in nightclubs and by day I'd always be out in the fresh air. In my search for adventure I travel a lot in my old cars, mostly in my Land Rover Defender.

Winters in the Canary Islands and summers in and around Europe. That´s how I’ve divided my time since 2000, when I completed my education in communications electronics engineering to embark on a career in mountain biking.

I got into the MTB scene nearly 10 years earlier with CC and DH racing - but  enjoying the environment and riding style were more important to me than speed.

So, I was lucky to meet the right people and change career direction, becoming an influencer and guide/ instructor and modelling for travel stories and product shoots, or gear testing for the media and the industry.

Over the years I built up a wealth of experience and knowledge around various aspects of mountain biking consumer needs to the  high-end wishes of the biggest brands in the world of mountain biking.

So, for me, enjoying nature and riding well was the key to living my dream. Guided by the conviction that there is always a solution to a problem I’m never disappointed.
