I am in the search of the hidden symbols beneath the human visual surface, where lives the ancient knowledge of our understanding as human beings.

I do motion design and art direction following that principle, which guides me through my journey as an artist.

Over the years I have had the fortune to be selected on film festivals where I had the chance to show my vision and my work to different people around the world, those festivals are:
