An expert in marketing, heritage and cultural tourism, in recent years he has specialised in tourism and cinema. He has headed several projects about film tourism, including Barcelona Movie (2008), the first initiative in Barcelona for cultural tourism based on films, and Horta-Guinardó de Cinema (2013), an innovative project that has made this district of Barcelona the first to include cinema in its promotional plan for culture and tourism.
