Born in Bucaramanga. A small city in northeast of Colombia. He grew up watching and rewatching films with his brother.His love for cinema comes from home and a "movie dealer" from the neighborhood who owned a movie store and taught him his first history class.He studied audiovisual arts and literature at UNAB and then worked for several independent production companies in Bogotá. Back in the day, when he was 16, Andrés started making films in the streets of his city, so he likes films that wander the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction. He is looking forward to expand his horizons and learn all about the craft and art of filmmaking in the MFA in Film and Media production program at the University of Texas at Austin.
