His humanist studies – he graduated in Medieval History from the UAB - and his appreciation and passion for the mountain – which was transmitted first in his family and later within the Excursionist Center of Catalonia (CEC) - together with the experiences lived in this environment have defined his character and his professional life. For twenty years, he worked as an executive producer in the media industry, working on award-winning documentaries at several festivals (Milan, Dunkerque, Dijon, Torelló, Reus, etc.) and in countless television and advertising formats. Covid-19 forced him to redefine his professional profile and since 2020 he has been part of the 11Onze team, the first Catalan community fintech.
