I grew up reading the landscape of the Appalachian Mountains before I could read a book. It is where my imagination ran wild and my love of story began. Evolving within and rooted to the sensorial branching narratives of the natural world is why I'm so drawn to immersive and experiential storytelling formats that serve to expand perception and shift perspectives.
As a creative, strategist and executive producer, I work as a quiet force orchestrating, empowering, and innovating award-winning projects. Deep listening and boundless curiosity power my vision and I am endlessly drawn to the experimental edge of creativity. My career charts a path of entertainment innovation - from tv, streaming series and studio films to documentary, VR, and IRL radical collaborations in some of the most remote locations in the world. My credits are long and varied but highlights include: The Wire (HBO), House of Cards (Netflix), the first Bhutan International Art, Music and Film Festival, Gamefulness- ChinaJoy/ Shanghai (HP/Intel) and Ocean of Air Saatchi Gallery London, deemed by Forbes Magazine (and many others) the best immersive experience of 2019.

Before I could walk I was thrown into the deep end of a pool. Over and over again, across my few decades, I have swum in all manner of deep ends - world-class gymnastics, Wharton, Coachella, WWOOFing, Madison Avenue, Cannes. Uncharted territory has thus become my milieu. My first documentary pushed the bounds of editing and design (and racial marketability), winning dozens of awards including a coveted Sundance Film Festival prize. My first foray into television challenged us to create visually “impossible” digital set pieces for a little show called American Idol. The first music festival I produced broke all kinds of rules, smashed its metrics and won top industry honors for our client Land Rover. While deeply passionate about climate and social justice, I've had few opportunities to use my talents in the service of humanity. When the Covid hit, I vowed to devote my superpowers for good once and for all. At that time, only one thing was clear: We needed to use this unbelievable moment to craft a better world. We founded Hyphae to do just that.
My life has been a bit bonkers… a surprising, inspiring (sometimes terrifying) story filled with pirates, lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!), hurricanes and human powered, zero cash, zero emission global adventures... you couldn’t make it up. I wonder what it’s all about though. I’ve been asking that question since I was knee high to a grasshopper, but it seems that with each nugget of wisdom I acquire the less ‘sense’ the human experience makes. The one thing that has always made perfect sense to me though… is Nature. I learned to walk amongst ancient oak trees and herds of deer. My earliest memories are almost all green places where I was free to roam, climb trees and explore. Nature nurtured my sense of wonder, limitless imagination and adventurous spirit that made me the man I am today. Filmmaking for National Geographic, Discovery Channel, ITV and the BBC takes me to some of the most extreme and remote environments on the planet where I’m lucky enough to learn from the locals a deeper understanding of our vital connection to and relationship with the Natural World. WildVentureXR is designed to share that experiential understanding of ‘wild’ with audiences through the most mind-blowing medium possible and inspire everyone to take part in the greatest story of our time... the rewilding of Planet Earth.

Change has been one constant throughout my life. Storytelling has been my anchor. I was born in Mexico City and spent my early years in Tlapacholoya climbing trees and running through the corn and coffee fields. I was raised in my home country, Morocco and Spain and attended over 10 different schools before I was 16. In 2015 I graduated from Performing Arts Institut Lluís Domènech i Muntaner and moved to London to au pair for a lovely family of incredible filmmakers and writers. Having always been fascinated with storytelling, I felt just at home and had the opportunity to travel and meet creatives from many backgrounds but mainly Film & TV media. This experience led me to pursue a career in production. In 2017 I relocated to Mexico City and started working at Plural Films, where I coordinated and assisted in the production of several projects including concert videos, documentaries and news pieces for the London Times and Channel 4 UK. In 2019, I served on the production team for Diego Luna’s "Pan y Circo" for Amazon Prime Video.
