I started working independently for five years in local productions, until in 2010 I joined the cable channel Somos Bahia, where I spent my working hours doing camera, editing, direction and production in different tv shows, in addition to making my personal projects, in which I highlight the documentaries "Historias bajo tierra", "veteranos aquí estamos" and "Mujeres de Rojo" these last two, winners of the ATVC award for best Latin American documentary in its category. Finally, in October 2018 I resigned from the channel in order to devote myself full time to advising and training people and companies, using my mobile phone as a main tool.
In 2015 I received from JCI (Junior Chamber International), the recognition for being one of the 10 most outstanding young people in the province of Buenos Aires (TOYP).
