About

Born in the plains of Castile, Spain, Miguel Llorente is a traveler, writer and entrepreneur. Having worked for Hasbro and The Simpsons, he graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2011 and moved to California, where he worked in the restoration of Mercedes-Benz Gullwings at Burlingame Motors. He has co-hosted the online car series "Open Roads", and driven great part of the PanAmerican Highway in his grocery-getter, a 1981 Mercedes-Benz station wagon he nicknamed "Livingstone". His trip was cut short by a dreadful car accident in Colombia, which forced him to move back to his hometown in Spain, León, where he helped set up Four Lions, his family's brewery, and open his own vehicle import/export business.

His passion for automobiles led him to the United Arab Emirates, where he served as the Chief Curator at the Al Ain Classic Car Museum. He is currently gathering an all-star team for his latest project, Curator on the Go, aiming to set the bases for the greatest car museum in the Middle East, in collaboration with institutions like the Smithsonian Museum of American History and the Petersen Museum.
