Hi, I am a software developer with a side of media production. I have studied audiovisual production, as well as performing arts, music and computer sciences. What I most like to do, is to combine them all, and create things, sometimes nice, sometimes interesting, sometimes... weird?
I always like a good challenge, and base my way of life around constant learning and improvement.
For the last 15 years, I've been working at Aura interactiva and SH!FT eLearning as Chief Technical Officer. There, with an interdisciplinary team of wonderfully capable people, I've been responsible for the continuous development of SH!FT, an eLearning and multimedia authoring tool.
During these years I've helped create and develop various related software tools, from multimedia CDs in the early 2000s, to dynamic and responsive HTML5 content today.
We still have lots of plans for the future, updating the core tools and creating new ones to give more value to our users.
You can find more information about the project here.
In 2010, I worked with the Danza Universitaria dance group to create the Sujeto del Inconsciente installation. It combines video projection, live performance, and physical elements, all combined into a single organic unit.
I did sound design and video production, in tandem with Verónica Monestel, who was the show's director and choreographer. These are the videos we created.
Fragments of a dance practice
Preparation for the inauguration of Teatro de la Aduana, San José, Costa Rica. April 21st, 2010.
Sujeto del Inconsciente - Part 3. Played inside a booth on the theater's lobby. Like a peep show.
Sujeto del Inconsciente - Part 2.
This video was projected live over the dancers on stage, synchronized to create a virtual set.
Sujeto del Inconsciente - Part 4.
Played on a monitor on the theater's lobby.
Sujeto del Inconsciente - Part 5.
Projected as a texture on the lobby's ceiling. Soundless.
In 2014, my wife was working for UNICEF in Costa Rica. She had to benchmark some rural areas' high schools, and measure the impact of government's policies to help fight bullying. As part of the project, we created these three videos, portraying some of the experience there.
In early 2013, the choreographer and digital artist Jean-Marc Matos performed a videdance workshop in Costa Rica. I was gladly part of the project, where we created and developed an idea over three days. This is the raw material we recorded, as well as a shot of the final montage.
From time to time, I like to play a bit with random footage and video. These are some of my favourite little projects. They have been featured in different events in Boston, USA (Eyecandy for Strangers); Madrid, Spain (Mal Dormir) and Ferrara, Italy (Moving Walls).
I like to doodle from time to time. Here are a few of my most presentable drawings.
