Interests:
-Sports,
I enjoy most.
Football (Soccer) in amateur leagues for 10 years.
Snowboarding on and off since I was 14.
-Traveling,
Whenever possible.
Abroad, I been to Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, U.S.A (including living in S.F. for half a year), England, Italy, France, Portugal and Spain. Thankfully, I've had the opportunity to travel around my own country as well (had family and friends all over and a very cool and adventorous mom), including the Atacama desert and Patagonia (both chilean and argentinian, all the way to Tierra del Fuego). Traveling and learning about other places and cultures from whithin is, hopefully, something I will be able keep doing as long as I'm able.
-New Media Art,
A natural transition from film to the internet.
As I like mixing work and play, I turned my hobbies and skills into what I do for a living, which includes filming, browsing, hacking (in all the essence of the concept) and creating something with new technologies, elements or raw materials.
-Cooking,
As a hack.
I love the possibility to have raw materials and try to decipher how to mix them and how to confront them. I also love the total opposite, imagining or trying to imitate a final product, deconstructing it. Cooking came with my need to try and be the most sustainable I could be. Soon gardening will come.
-Education,
Learning and teaching.
All the time, as much as possible, about every conceivable topic. From all kinds of sources, to all kinds of recipients.
