From Barcelona, Oriol studied Audiovisual Communications at Pompeu Fabra University before attending the Los Angeles Film School. Starting his career as an editor, Oriol quickly realized that his real passion lay in writing and directing.

His directorial debut, THE BODY (El Cuerpo), is a noir detective thriller in homage to Hitchcock and Agatha Christie. The film opened the Sitges Festival in October 2012, along with being selected for the BFI London Film Festival 2012. Produced by Rodar y Rodar (producers of The Orphanage), it is Oriol’s second writing feature credit after Spanish psychological thriller JULIA'S EYES.

Oriol's second feature, Spanish-language thriller, THE INVISIBLE GUEST, which was released in 2017, tells the story of a successful young businessman seeking to prove his innocence of a murder after waking up in a locked hotel room next to his dead lovers' body. 

He is now in development on his new feature film, MIRAGE, starring Javier Gutierrez.
