Biography

He studied modern languages at the University of Oxford and in 1978 moved to Olot, where he collaborated with Ràdio Olot in its program News from the Catalan Countries (Notícies dels Països Catalans), which had a big following both in the Garrotxa as well as in Osona. In 1981, he moved to the Basque Country and gave classes in English at the University of Deusto until 2001.[1]

He has given and organized classes at the Catalan Summer University and on translation at the Official School of Languages in Barcelona. He has collaborated with the following newspapers: El Punt, Avui, S'Arenal, El Temps, Presència, La Vanguardia, El Periódico de Catalunya, Egin, and with the BBC. He participated in Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya's Winter School in 1997, and in the Congressional debates of the Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC) in Manresa. He has translated numerous books.

He is the coordinator of the Dignity Commission, an initiative to recover the Catalan documents plundered by Francisco Franco and deposited in the General Civil War Archive in Salamanca. He is the coordinator of the Lluís Companys Batzordea Association that organized the Catalan-Basque meetings in Donostia in January and May 2003. In 2002 he received the prestigious Saint George's Cross.

He is a member of the Catalan Solidarity for Independence political coalition and, during the primaries of September 4, was chosen as the candidate for Girona in the elections for the Catalan Parliament,[2] to be held November 28, 2010.
