A Levante UD supporter since his youth, he felt the pride of being a "granota" when he started attending the Nou Estadi with the "Free Grandstand School Pass" that the Club distributed in schools, developing a sense of belonging to our blaugrana stripes that has marked his life and which he strives to pass on to his family and friends.

Educated as an Industrial Organization Engineer and with postgraduate studies in management, he currently holds a managerial position in a global company in the packaging sector.
