I am a the son of a Paraguayan mother and an American father. I grew up in Guatemala and Colombia in my early years, and then came back to Paraguay to settle and finish my studies. After graduating from High school I went to the United States to study film at American University. In mid 2015, after graduating, I moved back to Paraguay to push the film industry and make more films happen in the country which is not that known for its film making.
