Hello everyone !
I am a proud to be a South American woman , I carry on my traditions and culture wherever I go. I was born in Quito Ecuador.
My profession as a television and cinema producer led me to work and live in differents countries. I have had the chance to be part of incredible and creative productions.
Throughout my life, the extraordinary people I met and the experiences I lived, formed my soul and effected my heart deeply. I can not be more grateful for this… and this learning path continues…
What studies did you do and what is your main activity?
I was lucky to find my vocation when I was very little. I discovered that my passion was to produce and be part of the world of artistic and cultural production.
I studied film and television production in Bogotá Colombia. I then made my specialization in photography, directing and production in cultural documentaries in Mexico. I have completed my education with a Master in Cultural Management between Ecuador and Chile.
I recently specialized in Ibero-American audiovisual co-productions in Spain. I am now writing my thesis on cultural management for multicultural projects from South America to Europe.
It seems that I have studied all my life … but no … I have combined it with my professional work, family and social life.
How long have you been in Luxembourg?
I have been living in Luxembourg for 6 and a half years. In this country I have received the best of the life-gifts : my daughter Inés !
Which reason took you to Luxembourg?
My husband who is Spanish was hired by Amazon – Luxembourg. I then decided to set-up my first cultural management agency in Luxembourg : Surfactory. This first venture brought a south-american flavour to the cultural scene in Luxembourg.
Now after 6 years, I am ready to return to the world of audiovisual production with my new agency SuYu Productions.

Do you often go out to eat and if yes what is your favorite type of cuisine?
Ohoo Yes ! I love eating in restaurants! My favorite cuisine is the Asian food , now I have discovered the new Vietnamese food in Luxembourg and I am delighted!
Can you give me one word in your language which is impossible to translate into other languages?
