Ezequiel Coeli Canobbio

My name is Ezequiel Coeli Canobbio, I am from Argentina, where I have lived all my life. I have studied Film and Television at the National University of Córdoba, and I simply love filming and editing. I worked for a TV show for almost two years and I have also filmed different events (including the most important Tango festival in Argentina that takes place in La Falda, my hometown).

I met CIEE in 2007 when my twin brother and I decided to participate in the Work & Travel program. We went to work to Taos, New Mexico (USA), and we had an amazing experience. So much so that we decided to repeat it the following year, and it turned out to be even more amazing! We met loads of wonderful people, got the chance to visit different places, and learned a lot. Now I have the opportunity to keep traveling around the U.S. while doing what I love the most: filming, taking pictures and telling the CIEE story. I won't have my twin brother beside me to share this experience with, but I will have the pleasure to share it with all of you through this blog. Hop in!
