Im a touristic planner, Master in Management and Tourism Planning and also PhD student in the same subjetc. I’ve been trained as a coolhunter since 2009 attending various training courses and specialization, even in cities like London or Berlin. Im specialized in touristical Coolhunting recently introducing my thesis on “New trends in tourist areas” at the University of Coruna. Currently I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Coolhunting, a fantastic initiative that coordinates its president, Manuel Serrano Ortega, another major national coolhunters and with which I have the good fortune to collaborate. Also, I am part of the board of experts and teachers in ICEMD and ESIC. So my personal project I undertake tourist coolhunting result of my passion for traveling and discovering new things constantly. Adventurer when I travel, I am fleeing from the tourist centers and enjoy themselves with the places that are still untapped and usually only for locals. Also I became a fashion lover since I started with this project, and so, fashion has converted in a very strong part of my life, being like the most important topic in trendsandtopics. Based in London, I work for the french brand Cop Copine.
