I have to admit that the past 21 years have been quite eventful. I close my eyes and I feel I have lived 21 different life times during that same period. Paradoxically, it all feels that it happened also quite fast. Sometimes I feel as if it was yesterday, that I was an early twenties kid checking out Sergio's band when he played on 6th Street.
Sergio was the first friend I made in Austin twenty one years ago, and one of the only other Venezuelans I know that made the radical decision of pursuing his artistic passions, despite of the many challenges that we had as newly arrived immigrants
Check out below a special film I made with Sergio, 14 years ago, when we were both students of the University of Texas. You can also enjoy some of his film work, including the first episode of the El Gallo series and the film Tiramisu For Two, projects where I worked as Art director.
