Born in the United Kingdom, he gained a Bachelor Degree in Economics from the London School of Economics before coming to Barcelona to start his own company in the education sector. He went on to gain a Master in International Business from the Universitat de Barcelona and started combining his company with university teaching. He loves the city’s diversity and has witnessed the huge rise of Barcelona as a great hub of leisure, but also of education and culture, particularly for young people. This human capital is the greatest value that Barcelona has to offer nowadays and he hopes that we know how to equip the city with the necessary resources to enable these young people to develop their ideas and futures here in the city itself. He is married with two children and he enjoys travelling in the summer to countries with a milder climate.
