About me

Roger  was born in Barcelona in 1985. From an early age, his parents initiated him to hiking, where he found an educational space based on the harmony among people and their environment. There is no doubt it has left a permanent imprint on him.  After finishing secondary education, at the age of 19 he decided to go to live in the Lleida Pyrenees, in a village called Pont de Suert ( Alta Ribagorça ), where he got the degree in Expert technician in Management and Organization of Natural and Landscape Resources. It allowed him to learn and get a close look at countryside and its people, thus expanding the vision and knowledge about nature, the mountain and the way their inhabitants live.


At the same time, his other great passion, photography, got him back to hometown, where he studied General Photography at the Photographic Studies Institute of Catalonia (IEFC) for 3 years. During this stage, he adquired a thorough knowledge of the photographic medium, without ever forgetting his connection with nature and the Pyrenees.

He began in the world of interpretive guidance at Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park in 2006. He also worked as a wildlife recovery technician at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Vallcalent (Lleida) in 2008 and the Wildlife Centre in Pont de Suert in 2010 and 2011. Since 2009 he has worked as instructor of environmental education in natural areas such as Montseny, Garraf, the Guilleries, Collsacabra, Serra de Busa or Serra Cavallera. He has also carried out ​​many courses and workshops including: Interpreter Guides of the Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, leisure instructor and instructor of environmental education.

To complete his studies in the field of mountain, he got his certification in Mountain Leader at IES Pobla de Segur in 2013.
