I was born in 1984 in Alicante, since I was a child I started riding at home. My parents had a couple of horses, which eventually became a stud of Pure Spanish Horses.

I started with 11 years at an equestrian show jumping, where I participated in some competitions. At the age of 14 I watched a video of Beatriz Ferrer-Salat and it shocked me, I loved her elegance while was riding in dressage, from that moment I felt that was what I wanted to do.

At the age of 17, I worked for the first time in a stud of Pure Spanish Horses. When I had more experience, I went with my horses to train to Madrid with the Olympic rider Juan Antonio Jiménez Cobos, where I was formed and I worked with for 2 years.

In 2006 I was Champion of Spain in 4-year-old Horses with my Hanoverian horse WINDELER and I got a mark of 87.60%. In 2007 I went with my horse WINDELER to Germany with the Olympic rider Monica Theodorescu, where I spent one year training at her home. Later I continued my training in Germany with the Spanish rider Juan Manuel Vidal, for a year and a half I've been working and training with my two Pure Spanish horses and my Hanoverian.

In 2010 I returned to Spain to my own facilities and there I train my horses to continue competing in dressage. My experience in Germany was amazing, because I grew as a person and rider. So I take this opportunity to thank all people who have given me so much in my career and those who make possible that I am still forming myself. I consider myself fortunate to be able to make what I like and I hope I can keep enjoying it.
