Hi there! I'm a photographer, artist based in Barcelona, Spain. I've been sailing with my parents sice ten years ago. Nowadays they own a Comet 45. I've been thinking about the Atlantic crossing from long time and I know it would be impossible for my parents to do it for medical reasons. So now I'm looking for a boat to make it possible. In my life I've worked in many different jobs; from a cocker to a carpenter. Nowadays I work in the advertisement industry as art direction assistant, that it's mainly building the decoration on an advertising spot. Also, I have an artistic project in Ecuador, and to finish it, I have to go back and stay there a couple of months in the northern area of Ibarra. And this time I want to understand the distance, the ocean and the time needed to get from this far away points in the map.
