Was born inland but since a young age has lived (almost always) near the sea, in different places. But his family is from the mountain, and from the desert. After many wanderings he settled in Barcelona a few years ago, where he discovered that what he does best is planning projects with artists. Recently they have begun to plan spells together, and he walks with stones in his pockets. Ah, and sometimes he has his heart in his hand.
