For as long as I can remember I have been involved in the world of art one way or another. Holding a brush and pen in hand, I have always felt the need to create and get my hands dirty. However, if there was one thing that stood out, it was my obsession with video. I asked for a video camera year after year in my letter to Santa Claus, and till this day I remember when it finally paid off. I got a toy camera that would not even record but also transmitted a live signal to a TV nearby. Years later I got a VHS camera, and then a mini DV camera, and so on. I was always adapting and creating short and simple videos with the tools that were at my disposal.
Being born and raised Venezuelan, I had limited to zero access to any kind of visual art school. This in time brought me to Alberta College of Art and Design where I graduated in 2014 with a BFA in Media Art Digital Technologies. During this time I explored and experimented within different fields of media art, but I always tried to mix my current practice with video. Learning programming, circuit building and animation all lead me to a six-year-long practice dedicated to video art installations.
Despite truly enjoying all of these practices, my passion still resides in filmmaking. For this reason, I decided to move to NYC complete the Master’s Program in Filmmaking at the New School for Public Engagement. Here I have dedicated my time in mastering every aspect of filmmaking with the intent of mixing traditional narrative film with my practice in New Media.
