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 'Un instante / An Instant' (Best Int. Student Film at Zaragoza Film Festival), 'La Puerta / The Door' (TIFF Kids, CineKid,...) and 'Meiying MG-01' (FANT Bilbao).
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 worked as a jury assistant in the film festival circuit, I have been a film programmer and I have been the Spanish ambassador of the EU LUX Prize in 2017 as well.
All in all, it is quite simple: I love film, I have something to tell, and I am willing to tell it.
