Art has always been a part of my life in some shape or form. First it was the theater, then music, and finally cinematography, which I find to be the most satisfying thing in the world - I get to express feelings and ideas through light, rhythm and framing.

I have a passion for visual arts, be it cinema or commercials, and am heavily inspired by music and style. I have become obsessed with lighting faces and feel there's nothing quite like watching a talent perform through the viewfinder.

My work ranges from commercial work to documentaries and short films. Whatever the format I'm working on, I find myself looking for good stories to tell. Having a conversation with a group of creative people, developing a visual idea to tell a story and then watch it come to life and touch people in some way will be my life's work.

I have a masters degree in Cinematography from ESCAC, currently live in Barcelona and am interested in working worldwide.

Hope to see you along the way!
