I'm a multimedia artist and freelance radio journalist based in Oaxaca, Southern Mexico. Since almost a decade I had been reporting for news services like Radio Bilingue, FSRN, Radio Netherlands and others. In the year 2009 I took part on the Winter Camp Congress in Amsterdam, organized by the Institute of Network Cultures. Now I'm collaborating with the Dyne.org Foundation to distribute Free Culture and lowering hardware requirements to raise freedom of expression around the world. My media and art work is focus on the paradigmatic use of free sortware to use on Journalism, Net Art and Education.
