About

I am a filmmaker, journalist and photographer living and working in La Paz, Bolivia. I have been working throughout this country since 2008, and in January 2014 made it my permanent home. I work largely in marginalized communities, with a focus on rural issues. In the past, I was the Editor-In-Chief of Bolivian Express, a monthly magazine and Bolivia’s largest English language publication. I have worked all over the world as a videographer and filmmaker, sharing stories on a wide spectrum of topics, from the lives of refugee camp residents in Kenya to families caring for autistic children in Northern Ireland. In January 2016 I presented via video call to Storyhunter's first San Francisco ScreenUp event, discussing my work and presenting a video I produced and shot that remains AJ+ Español's most viral video, currently with more than 18m Facebook views.

    I've worked with William in many different occasions and I can only say good things about his VJ work. He's an excellent shooter, producer and interviewer, and delivers a variety of creative, top-quality broll shots and interviews. He delivers footage in a timely manner, very professional, responsive and a pleasure to work with. I recommend his work to anyone looking for a great VJ in Bolivia. -Paula Daibert, Senior Producer AJ+ Español

    "William spent quiet a bit of time figuring out different locations where to shot our story about the Bolivian Teleferic, aerial cable car. He also made sure to follow instructions and shot at the right time of day to get the best light." - Tupac Saavedra, AJ+ Latin America editor

    "William captured excellent images inside the mine and outside the community. In the short time he spent there he was able to film a story that looks as if he had spent much more time there gaining access with the characters.” - Tupac Saavedra, AJ+ Latin America Editor
