Profession: Director of miscellaneous (film, advertising and short content).
Hometown: Buenos Aires
Current City: Buenos Aires


I am addicted to travel.

In the near future, I’d love to:
Read more than write.
Think more than talk.
Watch more than film.

In short,

I love:
Verbena tea.

I hate:
Being in a bad mood.
People who think they are a good person.

What would be the title of your autobiography?


What or who has inspired you recently and why?

William Eggleston’s photos because they teach me that there is no correct or incorrect way to take photos.

Where is your favorite place to travel?

For anyone that doesn’t know, I really recommend going out on a Saturday night to the Korean neighborhood in Buenos Aires. There are some really bizarre karaokes. Of the place that I know Kyoto in Japan and Antwerp in Belgium.

What’s your current obsession?

Taking photos of food. Bad cliché. Also I’m pretty obsessed with buying candles.

Your current sounds

A really nice band that is called Cherry Glazer (their hit is the music in the latest Saint Laurent video) and I’m also listening to a lot of a french duo called Saschienne, tre-chic.
