About Me


Always interested in knowing people that are also interested in knowing as much about the places where they go.


Right now my interests are cinema, new media arts, history among othes. I did a MA in Media Studies and a Documentary Certificate in NYC. I did my thesis about political violence and Media in Colombia, which is related to the History studies I was into.
