For Santiago, the architecture of "Centro Histórico" was the first thing that captured his attention. As a kid he would go there with his grandmother every weekend and visit a new building or museum every time. It quickly became a hobby to do the same thing all over the city. In no time, he had finished his degree in architecture, with an emphasis on history, and decided to turn his hobby into a career. Since then has enjoyed getting to know new people everyday and passing on the passion he feel for his native Mexico City.
Born and raised in Mexico City, David is an Ethnohistorian graduated from the National School of Anthropology and History. His field of expertise is folk and popular religion, an area of study that explores the syncretism that appeared in Mexico with the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors and gave rise to new traditions born of a fusion between Catholicism and Mesoamerican beliefs. He has also worked in the Historical Archive of the National Astronomical Observatory and the Digital University Collections Center, both at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, UNAM.
