Ever since I can remember, I have had an immense passion for geography and nature, and have had a strong desire to travel and explore the world.
I was born, raised, and have lived my entire life in Mexico City. At age 8, I memorized all the capitals, borders, forms of government, landforms, and flags of every country in the world. During that time, I also started a vast collection of numismatics and banknotes from around the world.
In 2016, I worked for a travel agency while simultaneously collaborating with some other agencies on optimizing their business processes. However, I decided to leave my job to volunteer in Zambia for a semester, where my passion for photography, the African continent, and my advocacy for the environment and our planet was born.
In 2017, I founded ALAI Travel together with my brother Poncho, with a deep conviction that traveling can be transformational to people’s lives and their cultural growth.
