I am 23 years old, I am from Colombia, but I came to Mexico when I was 6 years old. Cinema is my second career, although if I want to finish art history, the visual arts have always caught my attention, since I was 13 years old I wanted to take photos; start with digital, and like many analog photography is born from a curiosity about something from the past or someone and becomes more part of your day to day.
I am a Film student at the University of Communication and before that I studied a semester of Communication Sciences at UNAM. I am one of the founders of Cine Lakam, a small and independent production company that seeks to bring together people who are passionate about cinema and help them grow and polish their skills. I did direction in one of the Faro Aragón rallies, cinematography in a short film for 48 hrs and I have participated in other projects in the direction, art and production departments.
I am 20 years old, I was born in Mexico City, I studied in some script, directing and editing courses. My taste for cinema begins when I was a child, with animated films, science fiction and later fantasy films.
What I enjoy most about movies today is the power they have to convey emotions, how a story can reach a person so much that they change it or identify with it, I really enjoy analyzing how movies are made, but I also how they are structured, and currently in the degree I really like that I can discover a type of stories that I was not used to before and meet directors that I did not know before.
Since I was a child I discovered my attraction to the arts and creative expression, which is why I ventured into various theater courses during elementary school. In addition to playing the piano and being very fond of music. What attracted me to cinema is the ability to tell stories in a thousand ways and using hundreds of elements at the same time. I have always felt that everything attracts me and I am constantly acquiring new interests. When I finally started film school I felt a clarity that I had never felt before; I found something that I enjoy very much and also allows me to amalgamate any external interests that I have.
I am a young movie buff who found great pleasure in the arts since I was a child, because my mother, who is an artist, instilled in me an education based on the arts and humanity. Over time I acquired a special taste for dramatic writing. But it was in secondary education when a particular interest in cinema was born, I suppose that all those who have enjoyed cinema are interested in cinema. Of course I always had other interests, the music of the sixties and seventies and videogames, anything but racing, we found those very funny, but among all the tastes there was one that for some reason I wanted to live.

As a narrator, I see cinema as an otherness, because, despite the fact that it tells stories just like literature, it uses resources that are foreign to narrative. For this reason, I began to write about the films that I saw and liked, as a way of approaching and experiencing this estrangement."
Familiar with the cinema of directors such as Taboada, Coppola, Scorsese and Ismael Rodríguez among others, my cinephilia began when I obsessively watched all kinds of cinema, from the most blatantly commercial to the most independent, from the most conventional to the most avant-garde. I also studied cinema and have been the director, screenwriter and editor of half a dozen independent short films that have been selected at festivals around the world. I also directed, wrote and co-edited my feature debut “Recuerdos de Nuestro Infierno” currently in post-production. Outside of filmmaking, I'm an occasional writer of short stories, poetry, film reviews, and a budding novelist
