The Height and the View

Chelo’s house, which is actually a wooden cabin; is located at the end of Santa Teresa on top of a very steep hill. We climbed the first stretch on his car, but there’s a second one that has to be walked through on a narrow stone stairway. The prize for such an effort is, of course, the view. Or are heights enjoyable by themselves?

Await a wave

A surfer waits looking into the horizon, calm but vigilant, relaxed but aware. The same force swaying him will defy him any minute. Or is it the other way around?

Kinetokens: my kinetoscope memories

Pasku and I were travelling in Cuba for 13 days when I first thought about creating a different kind of visual record of our trip. We had flown into Havana on a cheap arrangement that only allowed us to bring small backpacks (30-40 lts each). I used the baggage restriction as an opportunity to rethink its content.

Fever in Pavones

Elizabeth is sitting up straight on a dry log, sheltered in the shade of a skinny bush. She is holding a midrange DSLR mounted on a monopod and aimed at the legendary peak of Pavones in the OSA Peninsula of Costa Rica. Several hundred meters into the ocean…

The Wi Fi Tribe

                    I was standing in the center of the lounge/dining room/bigcommonspace of Equilibrio Eco Lodge (with whom I was bartering in exchange of accommodation and food in Las Salinas, Nicaragua) holding my cellphone in my right hand. The weak wi fi had an...

Videosongs: My route and my music, together

                    I am making videosongs as I travel. Recording the parts separatedly, like I have so many times done in a studio, but in beautiful settings I discover as I go. When recording the audio I also make a video: record the recording. Unlike Kinetokens,...

Souls on Fire

It was a coincidence, but also a result of my persistent stubborn efforts to try and communicate with Kadek, who spoke almost no English, as he was giving me a ride into town on his scooter. We were driving past a small street just 500 meters from our inn, when I...

Cancun CEO Search

I was living in Playa del Carmen, Mexico in November 2017 when an online acquaintance sent me a link through messenger. Turns out Cancun.com was launching a worldwide search for a dream job: they would pay 10,000 usd a month to a candidate who would travel around the...

Rosetta Sessions Photos for Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone, the first and one of the biggest players in the digital language learning world contacted me asking for travel photos and captions that would portray moments and places to have #RosettaSessions all around the planet. The photos would be used on their social media sites along with this hashtag to encourage people to download their app and start learning and practicing one of the over 30 languages they offer.

Global Eclipse Gathering 2020 – Docu Work

I was supposed to leave Argentina on March 30th. Instead, I ended up flying to Patagonia with an adorable motley crew. They came from many different countries to start planning and visualising a big global gathering to share the Solar Total Eclipse that will be seen from the South of Argentina in December 2020. Thankful for the unexpected exciting job and for, once again, being able to change my plans; I packed all my gear tight, borrowed warm clothes (I barely own any) and went on for a professional adventure full of challenges, interesting people and laughter. A project that would require my absolute best at all the skills I had been polishing during my 3 years of nomadism.

I have always loved to travel, and would do it as often as possible. Almost 4 years ago I decided to leave home and become a nomad. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to visit more than 20 countries and meet people from all around the world. I’ve encountered difference and awe which I try to portray on videos and images I create for the joy of it. On the road, I’ve acquired specific gear and skills that help me best capture travel, lifestyle and documentary stories.
