I was born in Ensenada, Baja California, a small fishing town in northern Mexico near the US border. Due to the cultural diversity in my hometown, I became passionate about the beach, seafood and foreign and local sports such as soccer, football, baseball, basketball and volleyball. I am an assiduous reader of Mexican literature and history and a passionate taster of tequila, mezcal, pulque and other agave spirits. In 2008, I moved to Guadalajara, the place where our national spirit par excellence is produced. While studying at the University of Guadalajara, I started to work in the tequila industry as a bilingual tour guide. Since, I have had the opportunity to share the tequila culture with people from all over the world as we tour the distilleries in the valley of Tequila & Amatitan. As a tour guide and a sociologist, I value cultural exchange. I love transmitting the knowledge and history of my country to those who show interest. It is extremely interesting and valuable to see how many people come to Mexico to learn about our traditions, customs, landscapes, art, food and drinks. As a Mexican, I will always be proud to share the beautiful and incredible things Mexico has to offer!
I am passionate about many issues. As a sociologist I have a deep interest in the social sciences and humanitarian work because I think it is important to try to improve the world. Mexican literature and history also fascinate me. I like to cook and try regional dishes such as birria, enchiladas, chicken broth, chilaquiles, carnitas, pot beans, tacos and quesadillas. I am passionate about Mexican spirits. After studying them, trying them and visiting the distilleries of Tequila, Mezcal and Raicilla, it is impossible to not fall in love with the ancient tradition and the endemic agave plants that are only grown in our country.
Since high school, I have been interested in Jamaican culture and Bob Marley. My dream vacation would be to spend an extended amount of time on the Island of Jamaica (3 months or so). I would like to visit the city of Kingston and enjoy the sunset at the beautiful turquoise beaches of Ocho Rios & Montego Bay. I would like to visit Bob Marley’s house and talk to the Rastafarians about cultural aspects such as: veganism, reggae music, ganja, their history, traditions, and social, political and economic problems.
