Football means everything to me and is the way I see the world. I grew up playing football in one of the biggest clubs in my country (Pumas UNAM) also I had the privilege to play for the national youth team of Mexico.

When I was a little lad I used to dream of playing in the Premier League and to live in England, so in 2012 I moved to the UK to make my dreams come true, making videos in the stadiums, playing semi Pro football for Southport Trinity, where I found my biggest passion and total happiness. I’ve loved learning from a different culture,  travelling, making football content on YouTube, so that’s why I fell in love with Copa90.

In the summer of 2014 I went to the FIFA World Cup in Brazil where I had a fantastic adventure for 2 months. Then I went to Buenos Aires, Argentina to visited the most iconic football Stadiums in South America. In 2015 I spent 6 months living in the USA where I learned so many positive things and again I had an incredible experience in the “Soccer” World.

I also have an International Master in Business and football Management from the Johan Cruyff Institute. I have an enormous obsession to always fight for my dreams, true believer that with passion, huge desire and determination you can achieve anything in life and conquer the World.
