About.

me.

From Lucena, a little town from Cordoba and based now in Malaga. I’m 25 years old. Everybody calls me Alvarin because I still conserve my child spirit. I’ve lived in Poland, doing Erasmus, in Barcelona, finishing Mechanical Engineering and in Madrid, accelerating my ideas in Red Bull Basement.
