I have an MBA in Architecture from the Universidad Central de Venezuela, then returned to obtain a degree in Cinematography. My education in architecture has given me the technical knowledge and ability to manipulate proportion and scale, an understanding of depth and perspective, an in-depth knowledge of materials, the history of architecture, as well as the management and administration of a project. My time at the school of cinematography allowed me to transfer all of this knowledge through the framing of the camera, which finally attracted my attention and defined my actual passion and professional goals.

As an Assistant Art Director and Set Designer in television and feature film I am able to: 

  • Create sketches and drawings as plans, elevations, sections and details with dimensions and descriptions of materials and finishing for Construction Coordinator, Scenic Charge and Set Decorator.

  • Create 3D images and models for presentations and better understanding of a design.

  • Research to find the right solution and materials for the best executions of sets.

  • Survey of locations to create and provide directors plans.

  • Supervision of the construction of sets and all elements according to the specifications on the drawings supplied.

Whether leading a team, designing a production, creating a concept, communicating with directors or assisting, I understand the importance of understanding the dynamic of each project and its team. Also, I especially like to pay attention to the small details.

Functionality and the creation of feeling is always part of my work.
