A piece of Egypt in the city centre. This temple, a gift from the Egyptian government, was taken stone by stone from the valley flooded when the Aswan Dam was built. It’s a great place for a picnic in the summer. You can enjoy the sunset and the (grey) skyline of Madrid.

I did Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths College in London, and History and Aesthetics of Contemporary Art in Madrid and Barcelona. I’ve worked in a magazine, an art gallery, an international art biennial, a museum, a news agency and a university. At some point in my life I realized that my dream job didn’t exist so I decided to invent it. I work as Content Director in visualMAG, an online cultural magazine that emerges from the fascinating encounter of the Internet and the creative industries. But that is only the beginning. The second part of the project, visualMANIAC, will magically appear in a few months. You’re gonna love it.

Barajas Airport is so inspiring, a vibrating place to come and go. Love to walk in its roller stairs and watch the organic columns and the wavy ceilings changing colors from blue to yellow designed by the architects Richard Rogers and Estudio Lamela.

Spanish artist Jaime Hayon is sometimes called Almodóvar of design. So if you like "Kika", colours, Spanish culture and dreamy aestetics, you must visit Barceló Torre de Madrid and stay there for a night or just have a drink in a golden bar.

Reina Sofia museum is always a good idea. And it's never enough of Picasso's Guernica as well as the other modern art gems. Save some hours for visiting and then look round the corner and have some wine at NuBel.

Matadero is a contemporary creation center, a charming place to go at night to see the concerts and architectural lights. It always has an interesting program going on.

Going out in Chueca, the gay neighborhood of Madrid and grab a beer in the bars around is fun. One of my favorite programs is going to tranvestite´s concerts there.
