His work has recently been presented in various festivals around the world, such as Live Cinema in Rio, the Plums Festival in Moscow, Visiones in Lima, Mutek Festival in Mexico and the British Film Institute in London.

In 2013 he produced the immersive multimedia performance DROMOS. Presented in the the SATopshere during the Mutek festival in 2013, the performance critically acclaimed was widely disseminated by the media.
