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 designer career on 2011, after graduating with a thesis project about immersive audio systems for cinema playback, 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.

In 2016 I began my career as a teacher working full-time at the University of the Arts (Guayaquil) for the School of Sound Arts for 2 years and then relocated in 2018 to Quito, working as a part time teacher at the Institute of Visual Arts of Quito (I.A.V.Q.) in the Film, Video and TV Production School for 4 years, where I also supervised a podcast project in the Sound Expression course and the sound design of student documentary and fiction short films.

In 2019, I co-founded the company RUIDO EC, dedicated to the production of audio and music for Cinema/Audiovisuals, Video Games, Virtual Reality, Sound Installations, and many other multimedia formats where sound is very important, offering comprehensive sound production services and working mainly on the current ecuadorian cinema independent industry.

In 2021, 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 in February, 2022. I attended a 5 day workshop specialized in film sound design and film scoring.

In 2022, I started working as a part time teacher at INCINE, which is a highly acclaimed film school in Ecuador, in the Audiovisual Design online school. Also in september 2022, I came back to UDLA (Universidad de las Américas), now as a part time teacher, working in the sound department of the bachellor’s degree in cinema.

Additionally, i’m a self-taught guitarist and amateur music producer, playing in 2 bands, Liners (rocksteady) and Páramos Inversos (Alt-rock). I’m very interested in the interaction between sound, technology and art.
