Growing up in the unique Mexico City, I was constantly surrounded by such a diverse and bold culture and was always fascinated with people. I loved spending my time people-watching or watching TV shows that highlighted people’s unique lives. I loved watching shows about street performers or artisans. My fascination with people has been instilled in me since a young age.
I studied international business in college and got a standard job after college. Eventually, the business I worked for closed down. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because leaving my job helped me find my true passion. With plenty of free time, I decided to start running. I was hooked immediately. It was great exercise and a great way to explore my city. One day I came across an article about sight-running, which is when you do a tour of a city while running instead of walking, and how it was the new trend in tourism. It all just clicked for me, and I decided to start a sight-running tourism business. It combined my new passion for running with my childhood fascination with people and culture. I am never happier than when I am running around Mexico City showing people all that it has to offer.
