About Me

Writer. Director. Filmmaker. Storyteller. 
I was born the same year Barcelona held the Olympic Games. Maybe because of that I decided to run my own marathon: I would work very hard and I would sweat a lot, but in exchange for  becoming a filmmaker. To tell the truth, I have always been interested in art since childhood, especially music and literature, but there came a time when I realised with cinema I could be able to craft stories from every artistic aspect, which I then would blend together into something unique.
 
I had my first approach to cinema in 2013, when I studied at the University of California. However, it was in ESCAC (Spain) where  I developed myself as a storyteller. It was there where I found my filmmaking path. 
From then on I have shot a lot of stuff: music videos, fashion films, commercials and, over all, short films.  Some of them have competed in film festivals around the world, being the most successful ones 'I Don't Think It Is Going To Rain' (Silver Biznaga at the Málaga Film Festival),  'Preludi' (Best Int. Student Film at St. Joan d'Alacant Film Festival),'Un instante / An Instant' (Best Int. Student Film at Zaragoza Film Festival) or 'La Puerta / The Door' (TIFF Kids, CineKid).
I have also worked in another branches of the cinema industry. I have been juror several times. In 2018 I was part of both the UNIMED jury at the Venice Film Festival and the Mezcal Jury at the Guadalajara International Film Festvial (FICG). Prior to that, in 2016, I represented Spain at the Venice Days Jury, and I was the president of the Sitges International Film Festival Young Jury in 2014.
But there's more: I have written articles in film magazines such as Fotogramas, I have been a film professor at several film schools, I have worked as a jury assistant in the film festival circuit, I have been a film programmer (Venice Days) and I have been the Spanish ambassador of the EU LUX Prize in 2017 as well. 
I am currently working on my next short film, '15 minutes', while developing what will become my first feature film. In 2020 I also published my first novel, Lazos de sangre.
 
All in all, it is quite simple: I love film, I have something to tell, and I am willing to tell it.
