“Find what you love and let it kill you.” ― Charles Bukowski
Since an early Age I've been deeply interested in human behaviour and storytelling. After I listened to my heart, and to my very wants, I understood I wanted to create.
As a kid, I always wanted to be a man of action. A Commando, a police detective...Unfortunately, reality wasn't as I had depicted it. I was fed those glamourous images through years of TV and Film. I then realized that that's what I liked about those jobs. I wanted the stories and how they made me feel! The heroic deeds, the sacrifice and the prowess. I took it up to me to pass the flame that fueled my imagination and gave me such wonderful moments. The years before college I started listening to my calling and wrote a script. The script, unfortunately now lost, was nothing to write home, but it was a first step towards crowning a dream.
In college, I put all my efforts on understanding the media and the base of the stories. I took, Journalism, History (contemporary, of ancient civilizations, of literature, of art, of the Americas and even of astronomy), narrative, philosophy, advertisement and mass communication among others (including all the technical and theorical film oriented classes). During the 5 years of college, I got a better understanding of the world, the people and what makes a story matter (and if it doesn't, how to make it matter). This knowledge has helped me to be a better storyteller
