Born in Palma de Mallorca in 1973. Director and screenwriter educated in Barcelona and New York. His first feature film "Yo" (Me) has received numerous awards, among them the Revelation of the Year Award at the Cannes Film Festival, the FIPRESCI at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam and the Gran Prix at the Annecy Bienial. He has also shot campaigns for such brands as IKEA, McDonald's, PlayStation and PhotoEspaña, and has won several awards such as the Golden Sol at the San Sebastian Advertising Festival, the Effectiveness Grand Prix granted by the Spanish Advertisers Association and the "Excellence in Advertising" Award at the Reina Sofia Museum in Spain.

He is also the director of some of the referential music videos by Delafe y las Flores Azules and the "This is the Name" series, a microfilms project based on people's names, soon to be release online. Obsessed with giving the highest degree of plausibility to his images, his films don’t look like fiction and his commercials don’t look like advertising.
