I was born in Quito, Ecuador and I am fluent in Spanish, French, and English. I studied film and hold a Master's degree in visual anthropology.
I´m currently working on three projects. During the pandemic, I developed an interactive web documentary about the arts and crafts of elderly people in the heart of Quito's historic district. It is now on display at the City Museum Recently. I´m directing a TV series on the uses of public space and road safety for young adults. I am producing the documentary Light Memories supported by IDFA Bertha Fund and IFCI Ecuador.
I began my career in 2002 as an assistant director in the Ecuadorian film and advertising industry and later became an advertising director. In 2008 I shifted my focus and developed Así dicen mis Abuelos, a cultural project with indigenous communities throughout Ecuador. Later on, I created Ecuador's first Deaf film festival. This brought me back to film in its documentary format I produced Ecuador´s winning documentary for the DOC TV series El secreto de la Luz in 2014 and later on I was very fortunate to be given two educational TV series for children, which aired on national television.
For the past 10 years, I have been the inbound coordinator for Portland State University's Speech-Language Pathologists summer program. I occasionally edit videos for Proteknon and The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action. I have also taught for over 6 years at UDLA University´s animation and film career.
