Born in Puebla City and raised in Mexico City, I grew up fascinated by all the impressive old buildings and history that surrounded me. Since I was a child I knew I wanted to become an archaeologist. I loved going to the museums and archaeological sites near my house. Once in archaeology school, I developed an interest for ancient buildings (prehispanic and colonial architecture are my main fields of research) so I decided to study architecture too. Then I got a nine-to-five job as an architect but I felt my life was lacking something so I quit and started doing walking tours in Mexico City (nowadays I combine both jobs). I truly enjoy showing everybody the beauty and quirks this place has. Making friends on the way has been a bonus reward.

Born in Mexico City, I am a total history buff. I’m interested in my country’s history, especially in Mexico’s everyday life. I think society needs to know the past to understand their present. One of my dreams and plans for my future is to become a teacher. I worked in the National Museum of History (Castillo de Chapultepec) and that’s when I realized my passion for being in front of a group talking about Mexico’s past and present. Working in tourism is a terrific opportunity because I can talk about my beautiful country, meet people from all over the world, and walk in the streets of Downtown admiring the antique buildings that show history is alive in every corner.

I was born in Mexico City and from a young age my dad always taught me the importance of respecting our roots and culture. This is why a lot of my memories as a kid involve my dad taking the family on a short trip to Teotihuacan (pyramids), or visiting the Anthropological Museum and Modern Art Museum on the weekends. I love learning about ancient civilizations, especially the Mesoamerican. I remember being 12 years old and going every weekend to either a museum, an exposition, parks, or archaeological sites near my home. There’s actually a pyramid 15 minutes away from my parent’s house, so it was amazing! I’m so happy to have been born in such a great city.
