Chino was born in Madrid and his grandma tried to make a good christian out of him. When he was little he wanted to be a mathematician and a philosopher and an ethimologist and a white-haired mobster but Alice in Wonderland’s illustrations made him happy, which explains why he admires Kubrick, Tiziano and Pablo Escobar. He recalls that his hand’s scar was made while playing with a machete and that he reopened it to scape from a school supervisor (and it worked!). His New Year’s Resolution, every year, is to make a long film. His signature dish is spaghetti with shrimps, he loves garlic and his totemic animal is the platypus.
