About me

I'm currently a student of Audiovisual Production for Film and Television, with a degree in Social Sciences, focus in Photography and Digital Editing, from the Universidad Latina de Costa Rica, Heredia. I'm interested in everything related to production, from commercial and editorial photography to theater and filmmaking. Additionally, I have developed a personal interest in branding, marketing, and design. My love for production started while working for a non-profit theater organization. For five seasons, I fulfilled multiple roles, from Lighting Designer, and Stage Manager, to Assistant Set Designer. Furthermore, I have had the opportunity and privilege to share my technical knowledge by teaching a high school-level theatrical production mini-course. In the field of photography, I have earned recognition from a Canon photography workshop. My work had been part of a collective exhibition in Berlin.
