David Fabra Aguilar - born in Málaga, Spain and raised in Germany.

I´m a collaborator, a creative sparring partner and visual explorer, combining a passionate and empathetic spanish heart with a meticulous german brain. Above all I am a dedicated editor with a mutual drive to create.
My thriving tool is to trust my dearest ally - my gut feeling.

I have a soft spot for detail and aesthetics, pushing editorial boundaries, musical rhythm and flow, for comedy, for fast-paced edits as well as for subtle empathetic and emotional storytelling...

Currently living in Berlin, available worldwide or remotely.
