I was born in Salta, North of Argentina, and moved to Buenos Aires to study journalism at Universidad de San Andrés. In the meantime, I started to discover my world through photography. I did a four-year course on creative photography at the school of Andy Goldstein and several workshops on photography: in the Central Saint Martins school in the UK and in Argentina with Rosana Shoijett and Aldo Bressi. Later on, I went to study an MA in Filmmaking at the London Film School. I graduated with distinction with a short film I shot in Salta and was screened at The Barbican Centre. The short film name is “Mariela” and it is based on a personal story. I entered in different festivals with it (Uppsala, Palm Springs, ECU and BAFICI). Nowadays, I am living in Buenos Aires, doing workshops on creative writing and working as a freelancer in advertising.
