Today, I direct documentaries with a deeply personal approach and help others raise their voices.


Before immersing myself in the documentary world and the art of telling a story, I worked as a correspondent for Associated Press Television. Through almost 13 years of hard work and training, I had the opportunity to cover stories in extraordinary locations with fascinating individuals. However, as often occurs with passions that turn into obligations, the immediate, competitive, and sometimes isolating nature of working in breaking news led me to abandon what could have been “an exclusive” career. I grew up hearing stories of war and conflicts about my uncle Hermes, who worked as a war correspondent for NBC. He covered events such as the Gulf War, Sarajevo, Salvador, Nicaragua, and Cuba. His experiences inspired me to travel and tell stories of my own, just like he did. As time passed, I gained more experience and realized that my destiny did not lie in covering wars and conflicts. My projects and concerns have always been related to social awareness, with a focus on making a positive impact on the audience. I began to search for the best way to use my passion and creativity to make films that truly made a difference. In 2014, my passion for stories pulled me away from the breaking news cycle. I then adapted my journalistic experience into a modern storytelling style which takes advantage of the often singular opportunities we have to get a shot that drives the story forward dramatically. As a Documentary Director and DOP, I´m constantly seeking an artistic balance and social impact in my stories. Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my projects demonstrate a deep concern and commitment to social issues and justice. Since I was 23 years old, I have worked freelance, gathering News and Features for Associated Press Television and having collaborated on the coverage and development of international and national projects for various broadcasters: NBC, BBC, ESPN, Aljazeera, Fusion, Financial Times, CBS, VRT, ARTE News, Olympic Channel, France 2, Spicee, Univision, CCTV as well as independent productions. Combining teamwork and expertise, I work comfortable into sensitive stories which require strong visuals with limited budget and timing.
