Jeronimo is 24 years old, was born in Colombia and is now based in Vienna, Austria. From a young age, he learned to play the piano, saxophone, drums, and violin. He has also been part of different choirs throughout his life, starting with the Vienna Boy's Choir, the choirs of the Vienna Choir School and the Neue Wiener Stimmen. Later on, he discovered his passion for film and composition, and his first experience as a film composer was for an Austrian film that went on to be screened at the Diagonale Film Festival in Graz. Though he enjoyed filmmaking as a whole, he decided to focus on contributing to films in the best way he could; creating the music. Having graduated in Theatre, Film and Media studies, he embarked on the MFA degree at the Film Scoring Academy of Europe, in which he had the opportunity to work with three different directors for the films 'Her', 'One Last Laugh' and 'Bird and Whale'. As a musician, he also pursues a solo artist career and is the lead singer of an Austrian Metal band.
