About me

I am a videographer and producer with more than 10 years’ experience working on television shows, adverts, corporate, and live broadcasts and entertainment. I am Mexican, based in London and fluent in Spanish and English. Producing live shows and broadcasts has meant that I am accustomed to working at a fast pace, under pressure and to honouring strict deadlines. As Head Producer of Hechos Meridiano and Hechos Noche (daily news programmes) at TV Azteca México, I directed and managed the production team. I produced, directed, edited and presented the TV show Más Mascotas which was commissioned for 12 episodes, broadcast in 27 cities across Mexico and was the most watched Saturday broadcast in the region. I was also a presenter on the daily breakfast programme ¡Con Ganas!. I’ve worked on live events, having produced, filmed and edited live shows in nightclubs in Europe and Mexico, as well as filming and editing weddings and exhibitions. I have my own equipment which includes the latest Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, GoPro Hero 7 Black, the DJI Ronin S, and the DJI Mavic Air. I am highly proficient in the following editing software programs: Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas, Premier Pro, After Effects, Lightroom and Sound Forge. I am also able to use DSLR cameras, Panasonic P2 and the Blackmagic series. All my experience has given me the skills to execute each stage of the production process, from pre-production, all the way to post-production and broadcasting through traditional media channels, as well as on social media platforms. Through my work I enjoy making people feel emotion and creating relationships between the audience and the content on screen.
