all time crush

filmaker Diego Bunuel, grandson of the film director Luis Bunuel

Imagine yourself being with this guy on a magnificent island, you go swim together, star gazing and dine together on a cold evening… aaaahhh!! Just mind's eyeing. Meet my all-time-crush, Diego Buñuel, National Geographic channels host, Don’t Tell my Mother. Diego is a French film-maker born in 1975.

Diego received his bachelor's degree from Northwestern University, majoring in journalism, minoring in politics, and then interned for various newspapers such as the Times Picayune in New Orleans, the San Francisco Examiner, the Saint Louis Post Dispatch, the Miami Herald and the Chicago Tribune before going to work for the Sun Sentinel as lead crime reporter.

For the past ten years Diego Buñuel has been a foreign correspondent for French Television covering all kinds of countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, or the Congo. Every time he left for one of his stories, he would tell his production crew in the Paris office, "Don't tell my mother I am in Colombia, it makes her really nervous." After a few years of traveling repeatedly, Diego realized that the international news coverage, of which he was part of, only focused on the worst headlines possible. So Diego embarked on a rather unusual effort; to talk about countries that make headlines, but instead of focusing on the same three basic stories, he extended the reach of his eye to look at a more subtle vision of these countries, full of culture, people, interests that rise high above the daily news reports.

Diego, on the show, comments: Travelling is my passion - I'm fascinated by the remarkable stories every country has to offer. It was this desire that led me to travel the world - to Pakistan, Venezuela, Iraq and more - looking for stories and meeting fascinating people along the way. It was a great trip, sometimes travelling to dangerous places, which is why I never told my mother where I was when travelling.

There you go, a sneak-peak of my all time crush. You can still catch him at national geographic channel. Now, share to me who your crushes are?
Happy Monday y’all!
