Brief biography: I graduated as a graphic designer at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), in my first years. I quickly turned to editorial design and ended up as art and production director at Editorial Bonum. I was selected to exhibit in “y/o Diseño”, an exhibition of young designers at the ICI – Centro Cultural de España in Buenos Aires, which opened the doors to editorial work as a designer for Atlántida, Sudamericana, Ediciones B, Vergara, Planeta, Ateneo, Aguilar, Alfaguara, Manantial, etc. I taught at an incipient University of Palermo. Hyperinflation moved me to advertising, where I did art direction and creative direction in a couple of agencies and then I founded Iniciativa Publicidad in 1992. I worked for Telefónica, Páginas Doradas, Walt Disney World, Discovery Kids, L’Oreal, Deutz, Dow, Fundación Favaloro, among others. Developing corporate image, direct marketing, POP, packaging, signage, public roads, webs, spots, brochures, campaigns, strategic positioning and launching new products.
Photography, since my beginnings, has always complemented my activity. The growing demand for tourist material generated a survey with more than 10,000 photographs of the country that resulted in a photo bank “ImágenesArgentinas”.
The passion for documenting, for audiovisuals led me to found, together with Ulises Rosell, Fortunato Films. A fruitful path that left recognised productions: El etnógrafo (documentary feature film), the series Pueblos Originarios for Canal Encuentro and La Pasarela (short film). In a similar situation, De Paula – Purdía – Rey, produced the series Médicos del Fin del Mundo and the feature documentary Un lugar en el tiempo.

The sum of all my passions came together in a project that began to take shape at the end of the 1990s: Asociación Civil Rumbo Sur. It was legally constituted in 2001. Little by little I began to dedicate myself to the NGO and to the development of my own projects to the detriment of services to third parties. From Rumbo I dedicate myself to the research, recording and dissemination of our cultural and social heritage in multiple media where I use my professional experience in design, photography, video, creation and project management. I am one of its founders and today I coordinate it.

From there I have worked with institutions such as UNDP, IWGIA, SERPAJ, CELS, UBA, CONICET, UBA, UCA, University of Córdoba, University of Richmond, LASA, RAI, CNRS, INCAA, Canal Encuentro, Museo Quinquela, Museo Gallardo, and dozens of local institutions.
