How did you get involved in video production?
Come one, come all! It was popular music, of course. My first concert was an Argentinian pop band which you most likely never heard of.
But I was a fan.
Oh yes, what a fan! I wrote a letter to the front man even! And I was fourteen and in love with this guy.

And I fell in love with it. So much so that later on I went to school to learn how to write for theater. I wanted to see my words on stage.
I wanted to see words, not just in text form but performed, in movement. To me, words were actions. Which to this day is something I still love. I go to as many events as my budget permits. I love music and particularly live music, with passion. I guess you can say I am a big fan of the performing arts.
