My main thing now is an artistic exploration on imagined communities, fictional countries, and imaginary islands. This research involves narratives of possibility, visual explorations, and public engagements that can question our notion of a given reality. In 2018 I created my first fictional country and I’m currently leading a Master in Digital Publishing around this topic for my agency Folch. And I’m working on some new ones to come in 2019.

A picture of me in a club.

As for real geography, I live in Barcelona where I am currently Editorial Director and Narrative Strategist at Folch, editor for the magazines Odiseo and Eldorado, teacher in two Masters in ELISAVA, and prime minister of The Plastic Kingdom of the Pacific Ocean, among other things. I entwined my classical studies with an education in graphic and editorial design, communication, visual arts, movie and screenwriting. So far, I lived and worked across United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal and Italy.
