In Their Own Words

"Video, like any artistic discipline, is not an exact science. It depends on the creativity and talent of the person who carries it out, although you will need some knowledge in the field. In my classes, I like that students can adapt the their own needs and creativity, not only with techniques but also with the narrative."

"I have been working in the world of video for more than 20 years. Photography captivated me in my beginning years and later on; being able to apply my knowledge [of photography] by adding movement...made me fall in love with it. I have worked on cinematographic works; edited, recorded, and directed different audiovisual works; and have worked with live video and lighting in shows. Passion and experience have been the best of my teachers, and that is what I like to transmit to the students. Berklee [allows us to] transmit passion for our work, accompanied by excellent professionals and students who act as a continuous stimulus that takes you to higher levels than imagined."
