He began his career in Spain designing storyboards for directors such as Spanish Academy Award winners Achero Mañas and Daniel Monzón. The foundation in film cemented his passion to create films that are a mix of genre with art-house elements, commercial vision with a fresh and indie style, universal stories in local contexts but always through a social lens.
