In 1998, he came into contact with TV fiction through the production company Globomedia (market leader in South America and second in Europe), and developed his career as a cinematographic editor, working on several of the most successful primetime Spanish TV series such as '7 vidas (Telecinco)', 'Javier ya no vive solo' (Telecinco), 'Los Serrano' (Telecinco), 'Compañeros (Antena 3)' and 'Policías, en el corazón de la calle' (Antena 3).
