Martín Lyon

Martin was born Chilean but grew up in Uruguay. Always in contact with the sea through sailing and surfing he finished his Industrial Engineering degree before relocating to Barcelona. Went corporate for a couple of years but didn’t see himself in that world much longer so he quit and went back to sailing, becoming a skipper for a charter company in Ibiza and doing boat deliveries in the winter. Writing was always one of his creative outputs, collaborating with blogs and fanzines. During the winter he continues pursuing his creative passions through analog photography and playing with his indie band Camel Exilio.
