I adore being part of a teem.
I realy enjoy the post-production creativity.

I have been fascinated by the world of art, in all it's forms, since I was very young. At age 21, a deep interest in filmmaking led me to enroll at the "Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV" (International Film and TV School) in San Antonio de Los Baños, Cuba. My cinematography degree in hand, I then went on to the "Ecole Supérieure d’Audiovisuel" (Higher Institute for Audiovisual Studies) in Toulouse, France, where I earned a master’s degree in audiovisual production.
During my studies, I completed several internships at the biggest audiovisual equipment rental companies in Paris, which allowed me to perfect my knowledge of cinematography equipment. Technical mastery is still a top priority for me today, especially given the ever-changing nature of technology!
Until 2000, I worked as an AC, Camera Assistant. While learning the ropes in my field, I had the good fortune to work with influential individuals such as: Pierre L’homme and Eduardo Serra.
In 2000, I took the next steps to become a full-fledged cinematographer, completing steady cam coursework to round out my range of skills. After some initial work on documentaries, I put my skills to the test in short films and then music videos, a genre that helps fine-tune artistic sensibility, effectiveness and speed.
My education, the many places I’ve been able to travel to, the people I’ve met and my endless curiosity are what continue to strengthen my commitment and enrich my journey. My aim today is to enhance my approach to promotional films by working on increasingly ambitious projects, and to move toward my ultimate goal: Feature films.
The way I see things:
The success of a cinematographer’s work depends first and foremost on good teamwork, a collaborative approach to creating a work of art, to creating a film. Good framing and the right lighting are the result of constant attention to what’s happening in the organic, conceptual and cultural world around us. My passion for art in all its forms (cinema, painting, dance, architecture and music) is a continual source of inspiration for me. I love constantly learning!
There are no hard and fast rules in this line of work, but if there’s one thing that’s true for me, it’s that your development as a cinematographer depends on the people and directors you meet along your path. I also practice photography, which for me is a personal means of expression and a means of visual research and experimentation.
