David Monge
Geologist, CEO in GeoGata

Geologist, graduated with the best results at the University of Huelva, SW Spain. He has always been apassionate about the outdoors, and he is an educational and divulgation vocational worker.

He worked for six years in public and private companies as an engineer and as a technician, as well as for the University as a researcher. He dealed with duties that ranged from athmospheric pollution to marketing management. At the same time he was moving towards east, first to Sevilla, next to Granada, and then, in the spring of 2008, he came up with the idea of geoGata after a vacation in the Cabo de Gata – Nijar Natural Park – Almería. So he’s living where he wanted to live, doing what he likes to do, and waiting for visitors to show them this geology paradise.
