I was born in Valence in 1975. I studied audiovisuals and in 1998 I spent two months in Mexico investigating the contemporary mexican shortfim. Since I came back to Spain, I’ve been working for television in Valence and Barcelona, in different fictional series, programs and documental series. I’ve made three short films as a director, and a 52' documentary for TV. I’ve directed some TV commercials too, and in Barcelona I worked in the promos department of Citytv, where I won two golden latinoamerican Promax Awards in 2002.
