I'm an Argentinian artist from Buenos Aires, based in Madrid, Spain. *

I mostly make short films and other kinds of videos. I'm also an occasional doodler, graphic designer, amateur copy-paster, and a professional scanner archivist (?)

​My work undulates between fiction, non-fiction, and whatever happens in between those two.
