I am one of life’s enthusiasts and I love finding ways to facilitate my guests’ enjoyment of interesting places and fun events. I like to think that by satisfying their travel needs, I’m providing them with little hits of happiness. It is rewarding, like a jigsaw puzzle, when things slot into place.
My background is in conflict resolution and international relations. I am a good listener and very organised, someone who is genuinely interested in the variety of different people and places the world contains, so working at Insider’s Travel is perfect for me.
Originally from Barcelona, I have lived in many places with all of their different cultural quirks. That is how I was lucky enough to acquire several languages (Catalan, Spanish, French and English) and those have given me the tools and the insight to understand and bridge cultural gaps. I have lived in France, Switzerland, UK, Morocco and the United States during different periods as well as Spain, but my heart is Mediterranean. I am a big fan of its delicious simple food and lifestyle.
Despite that, I have been happily resident in Madrid since 2021 and proud to be caring for my two young daughters. I honestly think being a father is the hardest yet most joyful job, and I’m glad to report that I’m good at it! At least, I hope my daughters think that when they grow up…
I am a fitness freak and I love being surrounded by parks and mountains in Madrid, so I can enjoy the outdoors. I have also been a personal trainer in the past, so I take my health very seriously and enjoy the buzz of a good workout.
My favourite places are, firstly, Madrid; a brilliant combination of all the places I’ve ever been. Anywhere you go there is good food, colour, light and ambience as well as a great work-life balance. It is safe and spacey, but not so huge you feel swamped. People are friendly, kids are welcome everywhere and it is affordable. It’s just a great place to be.
The other place is Mallorca. It’s a luminous Mediterranean paradise where life is beautiful and you can relax on its glorious beaches. I have lots of good childhood memories from the island because I partly grew up there.
