A SOUND TELLS YOU MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS
For more than two decades I have dedicated my career to the recording and dissemination of nature sounds. I was trained at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil, with the outstanding curator of the Neotropical sound archive, Jacques Vielliard. I am also trained as a Nature Sound Recordist by the Lab of Ornithology at Cornell University, USA.
In 2014, my passion for birds and my ability to identify them by their songs led me to win the first edition of National Geographic's Superbrains program.
I have published over 15 works portraying bird sounds in America and have had the honor of giving lectures, courses and workshops at various events on nature sounds, accessible tourism and bird sounds. Currently, I collaborate with the Macaulay Library's sound collection, the most important nature sound library in the world.
Among the most memorable moments of my career, I was invited to Cornell University in New York, where I presented my lecture "A World of Sounds", in which the soundscapes of the places where I recorded were the protagonists, transporting the audience through the emblematic sounds of nature. In addition, I recently received the award for transformation in nature tourism: Colombia Riqueza Natural, for the creation of the first birdwatching route for visually impaired people in South America. I am very proud to have contributed to the promotion of accessible tourism and to have brought the beauty of nature to a wider audience.

50 Explorers Club
Es un honor para mí formar parte de la promoción 2024 de The Explorers Club 50: Cincuenta personas que están cambiando el mundo y que el mundo necesita conocer.
Cada año, el EC50 reconoce a cincuenta personas extraordinarias que realizan un trabajo extraordinario para promover la ciencia y la exploración, pero que permanecen bajo el radar y fuera de los focos.
Mis compañeros homenajeados están explorando, inspirando y creando el futuro: el futuro del planeta, de la vida en él y de las ilimitadas posibilidades que nos aguardan a todos. Me entusiasma formar parte de esta comunidad visionaria.

A qué suenan tus ojos
Juan Pablo was born without the ability to see. With great enthusiasm and an adventurous spirit he travels from Sao Paulo (Brazil) to the Colombian Amazon to encounter the unknown and unusual; without fear of anything he faces great challenges.
Bird tourism for the blind
In Colombia it is now possible for a blind person to observe birds thanks to a tourism project
All my actions have accessibility and inclusion as a common denominator.
