As a director and producer Nico is a committed seeker of artistic balance and impact. In a time where many take the easy way, he always leads his audience to introspection and questioning. The topics of his productions show a deep concern about social issues. He has made long and short documentaries for Broadcasters, such as BBC, Aljazeera, Fusion, VRT, ARTE, France 2, Spicee, Univision, CCTV as well as independent productions. Nico is also an experienced video journalist that has been working as a freelancer, gathering News and Features for AP Television for 15 years. Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he regularly gets commissioned both nationally and internationally to cover current affairs and breaking news assignments by multiple foreign broadcasters. Such as: the World Cup in South Africa and relevant stories in the region: Miner's Rescue, Chile's Earthquake, Volcanoes, Chavez Funeral,elections etc. He also accomplished two Antarctic expeditions for independent film projects. Gradually his passion for documentaries dragged him away from breaking news spot and now he explores new formats in order to captive curious audiences.
