He started as an educator at the Escola-Granja de Plegamans within the Board of the Abandoned Childhood, under the supervision of the eminent pedagogue Josep Pedragosa. He continued his work at the Psychotechnical Institute of the Generalitat de Catalunya and later at the Superior Council for the Protection of Minors, created in 1942. In 1945 he was awarded the Pelfort i Xinxó Foundation of the Societat Econòmica Barcelonesa d’Amics del País, for his masterpiece El Niño abandonado y delincuente, published in 1946.
