During all these years in the post-production trenches, I continue learning new tools and magic tricks to be more efficient and creative.
Through CORTES CORTES studios, I'm able to deliver exciting results. Either working solo or supervising a carefully selected team of talented people.
Clients keep coming over and over, used to a reputation for excellence, problem-solving ideas, and fast turnaround.

I create a FM Radio Transmitter
At 13 years old, I built an FM radio transmitter which motivated me to create stories to broadcast.
Recording, editing and mixing sound quickly became a passion.
I’m developing computer software to automatize radio stations.
Radio stations in my city hired me to stop using tapes and started using my software for digital sound in commercial breaks and shows.
I finished school.
I’m officially a Technician in Electronics. I’m creating electronic audio equipment. I continue editing sound for radio stations.
I created an Advertising agency
I’m visiting stores, chatting with owners, and creating radio commercials for them based on what they need. Then I sell the spots to radio stations.
I’m hired as Principal Creative sound director for the most important radio show in Argentina.
Video + Sound Editor for several primetime TV shows.
I learned how to edit video in AVID media composer. Start working as a video editor as well as Sound Designer for several primetime TV shows.
Move to USA
Reboot. Reset Everything. The important credits on Radio and TV shows I have, and the projects I did for famous Argentinean brands (most of them) are unknown in the USA. So, I have to re-invent/re-prove my expertise from scratch.
