Professionally I'm a computer systems engineer, in charge of a hospital datacenter and network operations.

I'm also an underwater photographer and amateur naturalist. Diver since 1994, I have about 700 logged dives in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Red seas, and the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans.

I have participated and participate in all kinds of environmental divulgative projects (books, magazines, websites, conferences, TV programs, exhibitions …) as a way to spread my main interest: to protect the seas and their creatures.

1996-Founder of M@re Nostrum Studies Group

2012-Founding partner of VIMAR (Marine Life)

I discovered the amazing world of opisthobranchs in 1997 introduced by my diving buddies and since then it has been a continuous line of work, providing underwater pictures, observations in the environment, and IT support for the divulgation of these contents. Some of the websites I manage:
