I was born in….
Patagonia Argentina, next to sheep and whales

I now live in…
between Punta Del Este, Buenos Aires and Madrid

But if I could live anywhere, it would be…
close to a few nice friends

Right now, I’m binge-watching…
some movies on Mubi and some others on Stremio

The last track I listened to was…
A full album of Giorgio Moroder: from Here to Eternity on vinyl.
Just found a lovely track on Lemonade “Daddy Lessons" by Beyoncé.


I dream about…
Effortless sustainable ways of life. I dream about sound systems.

The app I couldn’t survive without is…
Spotify, Freestyle Libre Link (Continuous Glucose Reader)

Social media is…
an encounter of data and gossip: how we're informed connected spotted spoiled ... no matter your location, so it gives me freedom, but you have to manage how to regulate the invasion of placebos and content-less data.

When we can travel again, I’ll be heading to…
Maybe Sri Lanka

The most important lesson I’ve learned in 2020…
It’s good to stop, slowdown and recalculate present time.

The best/worst thing about lockdown was…
Best: quality time to face what you like. I focused a lot of time interacting with new directors and crafters developing new attractions.
Worst: Missing friends and trips


What the film industry needs is…
Classic: always good craft, unexpected idea and solid storytelling.
At commercial stage: trust and compact good curation of people for each job.
The industry needs some senior risk-takers, new hi-end products and platforms, pieces for the new virtual cities and gangs.


What I wish I’d known when I was starting my career…
only do the work you like, don't run

The best advice I’ve ever been given…
Be yourself, cause no chance

The film I wish I’d made…
Apocalypse Now

My biggest inspiration is…
Trips and isolation in Patagonia.

The person I would canonise is…
Herzog

If I wasn’t... I’d be…
Bridge builder

My last meal would be…
Raw fish with beer and sake

My life philosophy in three words…
Avoid routine & people
