Education

I graduated from the UCM (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) in 2004, with a degree in Journalism.

I started my career in the radio industry working as a reporter, writer and audio technician for the broadcasting magazine Fancine (recording, editing and mixing the whole magazine).

After several years (2002-2005) specializing in sound at different schools (CATA, Puerta Bonita, Ondas Formación),  in 2008 I finally got my degree in Sound for Film at ECAM (Escuela de Cine y del Audiovisual de Madrid), obtaining a special distinction in my class.

In 2007 I joined Microfusa Sound School, where I developed and wrote the “Sound for Film Course Book Guide”, and where I worked as a teacher as well, until 2012.

Additionally, on December 2013 I became part of the faculty of Escuela CES, as a Sound for Film part-time teacher, where I’m still working at the present.
