About me


I am a London based filmmaker. I was born and raised in Mexico with an Icelandic background. After a BA in film studies in Paris-where I acquired critical and analytical skills- I enrolled the London Film School, at the LFS I specialized in cinematography but also thoroughly discovered all aspects of filmmaking. I directed my graduation film, Deserts, I am currently writing a feature script. I currently work as a director of photography and camera assistant on independent short films in London. I have been involved in the lighting and camera department in more than forty productions. I am always learning something new, improving my skills and knowledge about lighting and frame. I love the set and everything that happens there, I am an enthusiastic collaborator and a curious observer! If I am not on set, I might be taking pictures around London, and thinking about how the light falls on a building, looking out for light patches, observing the light on a friend's face or drawing mental maps of the city.

All our students leave with a portfolio of directing, cinematography, editing, producing and sound credits on at least 10 films - usually many more. LFS produces around 170 films each year on the MA Filmmaking programmes and last year these screened at over 150 festivals, winning many prizes, including the Cannes Palme d’Or for Best Short Film, the most prestigious festival accolade.
