On The Summit of Mt. Everest (29,032 Feet / 8849 Meters).
Being born in Spain, living in Germany, and spending most of my summers in Europe after moving to the United States, the desire to experience the wonderful landscapes and cultures of our world was entrenched in me early on. It became clear that international travel, adventure, business and philanthropy would become major driving forces in my life.

With the great honor of having traveled across 6 continents, I have learned that it does not matter what language you speak, what religion you follow, how much money you possess or what job you may or may not have, there are only 2 kinds of people in this world..."good" or "bad".
Following this simple tenant, I feel that our commonalities as human beings can far outweigh our differences, and that all "good" people can have a positive impact on the lives of others and on our planet as a whole...
Since I was able to walk, athletics have always played a huge part in my life. College soccer, scuba, snowboarding, basketball, rock climbing, high-altitude mountaineering, etc. have all helped instill in me some positive life skills; discipline, dedication, team work, hard work and to never give up...
Passionate about filmmaking & adventure, with a love for being on either side of the camera, I have been fortunate enough to have developed a well-versed set of acting, production, writing, directing and communication skills over the years. Combined with a solid foundation in international business, marketing, PR and event management, I try to utilize this broad range of experience to enhance & maximize the potential of the projects I am involved in. From feature films to documentaries, from improvised comedy & radio to international sports marketing, I take great joy in working on a wide range of original projects...
Currently I'm engaged in an adventure-based Feature Documentary and Virtual Reality production tilted 'THE QUEST Series'. I spent 63 days in Nepal for 'THE QUEST', filming in stunning 2D as well as one-of-a-kind VR all the way to the summit of Mt. Everest (29,032 feet / 8849 meters). The 1st installments of the series, 'THE QUEST: Nepal' Documentary and 'THE QUEST: Everest VR' Experience, are epic Quests to deeper understand + climb the most iconic mountain in the world, Everest, and to unveil the fascinating culture, history and nature of Nepal.
From experiencing Everest like never before in stunning 2D and full Virtual Reality, to exploring the Birthplace of Buddhism and more, 'THE QUEST' will take you on educational thrill ride through some of the most amazing places on earth!...
