Born in León (Spain), in 1982. I started to work as Photographer with local Newspapers and Agencies when I was in college, then I became Photo Editor in EFE Photography Desk in Madrid after getting my Bachelor in Journalism in Complutense University in 2005. In 2006 I got a scholarship to study Photojournalism at the Danmarks Journalisthojskole. Back to Madrid, I worked again for EFE and in 2007 I joined the photo department of ADN newspaper.
In 2009 I moved out to Central America, traveling and freelancing in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. I went to Haiti to cover the earthquake in 2010, and I was based there until 2013. During those years I spent one year and a half as photojournalist correspondent for EFE/EPA, and then freelancing and contributing for different papers and magazines, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Der Spiegel… and several NGO’s.
I’m currently based in Spain, but I keep on working abroad in news and projects. Lately in Turkey, Egypt, Haiti and Ukraine
