PROFILE

Music composer for Visual Media and Interactive Media artist with over 13 years of experience in the music scene. My diverse background, which encompasses concert music, flamenco, jazz and the folkloric music of different Latin countries, helped develop my musical expertise and has resulted in a unique approach to composition. As a practising composer, I am in a dynamic exploration of artistic ideas and new means of expression whether in an acoustic or electronic environment and equally comfortable working for small or large ensembles.

I hold an M.Phil. in Music and Media Technology from Trinity College Dublin, which adds to my BA in Music Composition from the University of Guanajuato (México) and I have obtained a Diploma in Sound Engineering from the Sound Training College.
