She studied her first cinema years in Chile and then went to the city of love to study filmmaking. The whole cinema obsession started fairly early when she got her fist video camera at age 12, a gift from her dad who was a film producer and director. It’s been 20 years, and it has been her longest love affair.

Right there and then realized Directing was the love of her life. She then worked in Wanda, Hamburg to lear the ropes of international advertising.
