Straight after graduating from Central Saint Martins College of Art in London in 2008 as an MA in Digital Media, I started directing videos at the visual collective Watergun I cofounded, where I produced commercials, music videos and films in the UK, USA and Spain, for Coca Cola, Adidas, Intel, Sony Music and Warner Music for 7 years.
But I strongly felt something was missing.
In 2015 a friend put a Samsung Gear VR headset on me and fired a seemingly inoccuous 360 video called “Battle for Avengers Tower” that blew my mind at the time.
After that, I couldn’t stop thinking about what I felt inside that headset and I decided to take on bigger breadths and deeper depths with immersive media, joining the then-emerging immersive studio Future Lighthouse as creative director in 2015.
Little did I know I was about to embark on a fabulous journey, creating more than 80 immersive experiences for all sorts of devices like Oculus Rift and Quest, Magic Leap, HTC Vive or Playstation VR, receiving more than 70 awards and recognitions for it, and ultimately blending the things I love most: meaningful stories and exciting technology.
Apart from that, I own a collection of 450+ Stormtrooper toys, taught Digital Design while I was studying at Central Saint Martins, started studies in Computer Science, Fine Arts and History of Art, survived Glastonbury Festival 7 times, lived in London for about 11 years, in Chile for almost 1, worked as an art director in advertising, played in 2 terrible bands and I was thanked at the Oscars.
If you’ve made it this far, you deserve a big hug.
