Born in Lima - Peru and currently based in New York, I'm a researcher and multimedia artist working with technology, storytelling and
visual experiences. I am interested in computer graphics, 2D and 3D development and immersive experiences.
Back home I worked in documentary and advertising as an Assistant Director & Videographer before moving to NYC to pursue a Master's degree
