Pontevedra, España, 1978. Su ámbito profesional está originalmente relacionado con el mundo de la arquitectura, y es en la fotografía donde ha encontrado un lugar al que siempre regresar y en el que compartir su actividad profesional. Su formación fotográfica se construye de manera autónoma mediante la exploración e investigación constante y con la asistencia a formación selectiva complementaria en aquellas áreas que despiertan un mayor interés o suponen un reto para él. Su mirada está próxima a la fotografía documental y trabaja en aquellos temas con los que se identifica o que le preocupan. Disfruta especialmente de los procesos de investigación, documentación y exploración, porque más allá de un fin artístico para él es importante que exista un proceso de crecimiento personal al abordar cada proyecto.

Pontevedra, Spain, 1978. His professional field is originally related to the world of architecture, and it is in photography where he has found a place to always return to and share his professional activity. His photographic training is built up autonomously through constant exploration and research and by attending selective complementary training in those areas that arouse his interest or pose a challenge for him. His approach is close to documentary photography and he works on those subjects with which he identifies or which concern him. He especially enjoys the processes of research, documentation and exploration, because beyond an artistic aim, it is important to him that there is a process of personal growth when tackling each project.
