With more than thirty years of experience as an archaeologist and twenty as an official tourism guide, I have always sought to combine research with the dissemination of Historical Heritage, with special interest in our immediate surroundings, Andalusia.
As an official Tourism Guide I have worked with clients of all kinds, from primary school students to university students. And of course groups of travelers of different ages and nationalities, commissioned by different national and international agencies, hotels or directly managed, preferably in private groups.
I have also made visits to all of Andalusia as a guide-interpreter, working for the Public Company for the Management of Tourism and Sport in Andalusia (Andalusian Tourism), Tourist Board of the Costa del Sol, City Councils of Malaga and Marbella, on trips of familiarization with the destination with tour-operator groups (Fam Trips), as well as guiding journalists (Press Trips) specialized in culture, travel or gastronomy, from the written media, bloggers or televisions from around the world, such as National Geographic, RAI, NHK, Sky TV, Icon, etc.
Within the world of the dissemination of Historical Heritage, I have curated several exhibitions on various themes and collaborated in others as a documentary filmmaker, selecting pieces and making catalog cards, or writing texts for panels and catalogs. I have also written informative texts commissioned by the Diputación de Málaga or Editorial Planeta.
In Tarifa, the town where I work as a Municipal Archaeologist, I have made the basis of a Museum Plan, as well as the material for the visit to its famous castle of Guzmán el Bueno or a Guide to Historical and Natural Heritage.
Always with the aim of making known the results of the projects in which I have participated, I offer or organize conferences where I have been required, whether they are informative or at academic conferences.
And of course, I have a long professional experience in archeology, working both for public entities (Malaga City Councils, Tarifa, Algeciras, Vélez-Málaga, Alhaurín el Grande and Junta de Andalucía) and for private companies. I have investigated sites from different periods, from the Bronze Age, Phoenician, Roman, medieval Muslim and Christian to the Modern Age, with special interest in archeology supporting the restoration of monuments.
