…and non-official bio
I arrived in London in 2010. I haven’t lived in the same place for such a long time (I’m writing this in December 2014) since I left Madrid for Paris at the age of 20. This means both that I have some trouble standing still and that I love London, which suits me very well. I did not really want to study law, and I never imagined I would work at a British higher education institution (let alone a prestigious one), but I have always had a love for teaching and writing – the activities themselves, more than the substance, are what matter to me. I have always had a love for stories – both literature and cinema – and for travelling (which makes the above less surprising) too. Over the years, I have discovered a love for running, which, funnily enough, I took up when Alfonso had just started his LLM in Bruges (the very first time I saw him, he was actually running himself, but he sure doesn’t remember that one). I also try to develop an interest in red wine – yet another activity where I avoid comparing myself to the late Phillip Areeda.
