Spanish politician and mayor of Madrid. He came from a rural family that worked in transhumant shepherding. With the decline of the Mesta since the 18th century, his parents had to move to Madrid looking for new economic resources. He married Antonia García Bermúdez, and they did not have children. He was named member of the Junta de Gobierno del Banco de San Carlos. In 1815, his family had two of the sixteen fichas de giro in Madrid, including the Banco de San Carlos. He was a supernumerary member of the Spanish Royal Order of Charles III.

At the beginning of the Trienio Liberal (Liberal Triennium), he was designated as a member of the Junta Provisional. In 1822, he was member of the Junta de Beneficiencia of Madrid, and of the Junta de Gobierno del Banco Nacional de San Carlos. He took an oath as mayor in Madrid's City Council with other five mayors, but he resigned from his position in order to go with the government in its exile to Sevilla. Later, and thanks to his income, he was chosen attorney until 1836.
