I was born in the highlands of Peru, where I learned the traditions and language of my town. I consider myself a highly skilled person when it comes to direction and organization of groups and public relations; skills acquired during my experience in tourism.

I enjoy spending time outdoors. I love kayaking, trekking, mountain biking, and climbing.
