My name is Ricardo Buenrostro. I am a Mexican student in FAMO’s English language, international study program. My studies in the audio-visual field began during high-school while I was still living in Mexico studying Visual Communication and Design. I then continued in this area while studying in Turkey for 3 semesters. I am currently in my second year of my Bachelor of Arts Degree studies in Pisek, specializing in Cinematography with the expectation of becoming a good visual story teller.
