Think of the real needs, propose from knowledge and get it through passion.

Master architect and Urban Designer and Master NOHA - International Cooperation and Humanitarian Action-. I’m a tireless reader, still with many things to discover and a learnaholic. I grew up in a small town in the sunny and windy desert landscape of Bardenas Reales, Spain. I worry about how we're inhabiting the world and leaving people in the midst of their difficulties. I like seeing how good proposals make people live better within buildings and cities. I’m into urban resilience,sustainability, accountability, networking, architecture, knowledge, sun and bathing in every sea. I believe in hard work, I wish to be happy doing things that fill my soul, and I trust people.
