Andres Cruz

Andrés grew up in Floreana, an island with 150 inhabitants in the Galápagos Archipelago. Living without internet, television or cellphones encourages him to become a creative observer and a nature lover. He spent most of his childhood interacting with giant tortoises, lizards, penguins, finches and other creatures while exploring his surroundings.

After finishing high school, he moved to mainland Ecuador to continue with his studies. In 2019 he got his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Communication in San Francisco University of Quito. During his career he had the opportunity to volunteer at the Charles Darwin Research Station (CDRS) in the Communication Department where he gained professional experience using multimedia tools to spread scientific knowledge.

Currently, he is living in Santa Cruz, the second largest island in the archipelago, enjoying its beauty while doing what he loves: photography, filmmaking, surfing and sailing.
