Bio

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. When I was a child, I use to talk all the time about football and technology. From early days, I spent most of my time in front of screens, wether that was in Paint, trying to rescue Peach, or just cautiously watching the little squares from the Windows 95 disk defragmenter turn green.

When I was fourteen, I had my first encounter with a digital video camera, and a few days later, guided by curiosity, I was sitting down editing my first short film which was just a friend hanging out from thousands of different points of view. That was the time when I discovered how much I loved to play with cameras and computers, and when I also met my most loyal business partner: Adobe.

After finishing high school, I went to college and majored in audiovisuals while, in parallel, taking courses for every software I came across to try to structure all the self-learning I did for years. When I graduated, I started making freelance videos for all kind of organizations. In 2009, I made a documentary for YouTube that reached nearly 9 million views, which opened to me the possibility of making five long-form documentaries for TV broadcast in Latinamerica.

After college, I also started teaching in film schools assignments related to direction, production, post-production, digital art and multimedia design. This provided me the possibility to know and learn from more than 700 students accross 4 years.

In 2014, my overseas journey began. I had a first stop in Australia, were I had the chance to lead a team of motion designers. After some years where I had the honour to work with some of the most succesful brands of the world, I finally settled in Germany to work in a technology I deeply believe in: blockchain. During the last years, I was consecutively hired as the first in-house designer of two of the most reputable projects of the industry, in charge to build brands, processes, teams, and culture.

Work Experience

2017/2020

Lightcurve

In 2017 I joined Lightcurve as the first designer of the Company. Lightcurve is a blockchain development studio based in Berlin that focuses on building Lisk, a JavaScript-based blockchain application platform founded in May 2016, with the vision of broadening and easing the accessibility of blockchain technology.

At Lightcurve, I was not only responsible for implementing Design processes and workflows but also growing and managing the whole Design department, which was subdivided into product design and brand design.

The product design team was accountable for leading the interfaces and experience of Lisk Hub and Lisk Mobile, the official Lisk wallets, always pursuing the northstar of making blockchain accessible to everyone at each step of the way, from on-boarding to conversion, through modern, clean, and easy-to-use applications.

The brand design team was not only in charge of creating, expanding, and consolidating the corporate identities of both Lightcurve and Lisk, but also responsible for supporting the Marketing initiatives throughout a full range of deliverables, from technical infographics for the Lisk Academy, a Lightcurve-owned blockchain education portal, to all sorts of visuals and video series, that were shared daily with a community of more than 100.000 enthusiasts.

2014/2017

Resolution Media

In 2014 I started my overseas journey working full-time as a motion designer at Resolution Media, an agency located in Melbourne, Australia. With more than 15 years in the business, the agency has a successful track record of producing a wide array of audiovisual content, ranging from TV or online advertising, corporate videos, long-form animations, and documentaries, among other formats.

At Resolution Media I was in charge of leading the motion design projects, as well as the team of in-house animators. Throughout the years, I had the opportunity to direct and collaborate in hundreds of long and short-form motion graphics projects and case studies, for companies such as Red Cross, Starcom, Telstra, Westpac, University of Melbourne, Australia Post, McDonald's, REI, and Coca-Cola, among others.
