I am a truly believer and fan of magic. Magic created on sets where passionate people,
united in their belief in the power of the moving image, manage to touch human kind’s
most recondite feelings. As film-makers, we create new realities, elicit innumerable
emotions from happiness and love, to tension and despair, and conjure countless endings:
sometimes sad, sometimes happy, sometimes endings that are mere paths to new
For several years, I filmed wildlife and commercial clips for the travel industry, with a
marketing objective but a creator’s eye. I learnt my film-making craft on these productions,
often working alone or in very small teams, on tight budgets, transforming ideas and
sketched notes into final polished promotional products, working as a screenwriter,
producer, director, cameraman, gaffer… You name it. I would then edit and colorize the
clips, and put them to music.

I left Ecuador to study for my Master ́s degree in Cinematography at ESCAC, in Barcelona,
Spain. I made the most of my time in Europe to travel and experience different cultures.
Travel taught me independence, problem-solving, empathy and budgeting! My experiences
as a student have given me technical skills, of course, but also brought home to me the
importance of team-building, uniting disparate creative people towards a common goal.
I believe in light with the same intensity that I believe in shadows. I believe in scenes
capable of holding the attention of the whole world, framed so that everything else melts
away into nothing. But above all, I believe in the spark of creativity and the power of the
moving image over an audience. I have a long way to fly and a lot of stories to tell. I am
convinced colors, words, sounds, videos and the tools of our craft can transmit an idea that
can change the world.
