My story

Born and raised in Barcelona, ​​my life has been an evolution of experiences around the world.

 

Starting with a career as a teenage athlete in the world of athletics, followed by being the manager of a multinational Human Resources in Latin America, later a brief stint in London during the dot-com bubble, a two-year period in the region devastated by the Kosovo war - where I added my grain of sand in the attempt to secure peace and foster progress as a member of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) - and finally the World Bank in Washington, DC, from where I supported the development of countries from the Middle East.

 

However, in 2009, I decided to resign from my position as a senior officer at the World Bank and return to Spain to be close to my family, particularly Marc, my son.

 

Since then, I've been fortunate enough to play supporting roles in films such as Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea' epic, The Wachowski film 'Cloud Atlas', Alex de la Iglesia's biographical film about soccer superstar Lionel Messi, the HBO-TNT television series 'Transporter' among many other productions. I have also directed my first short film "Live with it", which has received international awards.

In addition to earning a living as an actor, when I can I like to take part in narratives that address topics that have followed me throughout my life, such as the uncontrollable rise of capitalism, the ideals of romantic love imposed by society, the false sense of identity induced by any nationalism, or the struggle to go through life with the restrictions of being simple humans.
