About Me

Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Photographer. 

I'm a 33-year old cinematographer with ten years of experience. Ten years working exclusively with image, thinking and developing many different ways to communicate, share messages and emotions through images. Along my career I’ve worked in three feature films as camera operator; more than fifteen short films as DoP, Director, Camera operator or Gaffer; some TV shows, music videos and uncountable corporate videos. It gave me a deep comprehension about image creation and narrative development.


This website share many of the projects I’ve been part, but some I don’t have rights to publish here, others got lost throughout years. My first got lost in a old VHS tape in a shelve somewhere, but I’m still proud of it. I’m proud of every and each image I helped to develop, and all others coming forward.


Glance a look at some videos, download my CV here if you want more details and do not hesitate in contact me. I’ll be filming somewhere and it will be a pleasure to do it with you.
