I am an experienced Video Editor utilizing Adobe CC - Premiere Pro and Media Encoder, and FCP 7. I have also experience as a Motion Graphic Designer using After Effects and Photoshop. I have worked on music videos, documentaries, narrative, and corporate videos for Google; San Francisco based ad agencies such as OWC, School of Thought and Madrone Studios; Reebok and IGN Entertainment. My most recent work includes Instructional videos for FasTrak and editing on the spot presentations held at one of Google macro events: Google Cloud Next 2018. Smoakland, a short that I edited, added special effects and helped with pre-production, was selected for the San Francisco Frozen Film Festival 2018 and screened on July at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco I have always been a keen observer and explorer of the world around me. I consider myself a natural storyteller, always trying to find the balance between substance and style, spontaneity and commitment, provocation and grace. Originally from Spain (Madrid) based on San Francisco for many years, I had a previous career in Psychology. Swing and fusion dancing, hiking, having a good laugh with friends, reading witty writers work, cooking, eating, and watching movies and tv series are the kind of things that make me very happy.
