I'm originally from Colombia, but I lived in the USA for four years and six years in the UK now, which is where I'm based. I work as a freelance sound engineer, music composer and video editor. I like to approach projects in a holistic manner, understanding where everything must fit in order to convey a story, a narrative; to create emotion in people.

Being a musician and a music technologist is something that has given me a bit of an edge when it comes to film-making. It has given me a more holistic approach to the entire process and I think a good sense of rhythm is essential when editing and cutting, and this is something that my music skills have given me. Also, sound is crucial to making a good professional production , hence anybody creating content should know what quality sounds like and how to achieve it. During the degree I got the chance to work with all kinds of software (Adobe Suite, DAWs like Pro Tools HD (10, 11, 12), Logic Pro X, and Ableton Live). Access to Lynda.com tutorials was also one of the resources that let me learn about a lot of aspects uni never touched upon. Three years (technically four due to placement year) of absolute hard-work, but, that´s it. Work hard, but party hard too!

I was awarded a partial scholarship in 2012 to attend Berklee´s 5-week Summer Program in Boston. The outcome was a lot of life-long lessons, great connections and friends, and a lot of music-making and drive!
