I am a Colombian TV commercial director... My work in advertisement has given me an approach to the audiovisual language, but at the same time it has distanced me from the reality that I am very eager to explore as an individual and through the camera lens. Therefore, since some time ago, I am interested in exploring my own documentary language. I am pursuing this exploration by taking the Documentary Production Workshop at The New School in NYC. In Colombia I have been working as a documentary theory, film history and filmmaking teacher at a range of universities. I have also contributed extensively to a range of workshops around the country organized by the Colombian Ministry of Culture. I am 40 years old and for the last 14 years I have been producing images for other people and teaching others filmmaking.
