FAQ, About


Sound designer | RUIDO | Ecuador

I’m Ecuadorian, graduated in 2010 as a Sound and Acoustics Engineer at UDLA and then studied a postgraduate degree in Acoustics & Music Technology/Sound Design at the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland on 2016.

I started my sound design career with a thesis project about immersive audio systems for cinema playback, then working as an intern in the most experienced studio specialized in film sound in Ecuador, Bunker Sonido.

In 2015 I was selected as one of the 60 guests to participate in the “Talents Buenos Aires 2015” sound workshops for cinema organized by the Universidad del Cine (FUC) and La Berlinale.

After my master studies I returned to Ecuador and began working part-time as a teacher at Universidad de las Artes (Guayaquil) in the School of Sound Arts for 2 years and then relocated to Quito, also working as a teacher at the Institute of Visual Arts (I.A.V.Q.) in the Film and TV Production School for 4 years, where I supervised the sound design of student projects in short films and podcasts.

In 2019, I co-founded RUIDO, a company dedicated to sound for cinema and multimedia, offering comprehensive audio production services and working mainly on the current ecuadorian independent cinema.

In 2022, I was selected among 2,250 applicants worldwide, to be part of the 200 participants of the Berlinale Talents 2022, which took place during the Berlin International Film Festival. I attended a 5 day workshop specialized in film sound design and film scoring.

Currently I’ve continued working as a part-time teacher in three of the most important film schools in Quito (INCINE, UDLA, USFQ).
The other part of my time I spend working as a sound designer in movies in my company RUIDO.

Additionally, i’m a self-taught guitarist and music producer, playing in 2 bands, Los Barrelshots (rocksteady) and Páramos Inversos (Alt-Rock).
