About your host

I’m the co-founder of the Day of the Dead Store, the first specialized craft and souvenir store in Mexico. My partner and I have traveled throughout Mexico in search of the most iconic Day of the Dead crafts. This event is listed as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, and I want to share my passion for it with you.
