Sound Mixer / Boom Operator / Filmmaker

Sound in Films

You can tell the difference between an amateur film and a professional one just by closing your eyes and listening to the story.


Sound is not important to a production; it's vital to a production.

Work process

The importance of the workflow

Sound Design Preparations

Depending on the type of production I will choose the best equipment possible for it. Testing every piece of equipment beforehand and studying the script and director preferences.



Is also important to adjust and fine-tune the sound quality, levels & mixer during the day of shooting. Syncronize Time Code between recorder and camera if available. Record sound effects and room tone during the production is also essential.



After the shooting I will provide high quality Poly Wav Files and help the DIT to store the content.

About me

Graduated in Computer Science and Software Engineering in Spain I came to LA to make my dream of becoming a filmmaker true. I am currently enrolled in the Directing program at UCLA and working as a Sound Mixer / Boom operator which has become my passion.

Due to my agile project management experience, one of my goals is to apply some of the tech-methodologies to the film industry.
