  • About Me

    Born & raised in sunny South Florida, I'm a Colombian-American filmmaker currently based in Los Angeles primarily as a freelance editor, as well as a director, producer, photographer, colorist & 1st AD. After graduating from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts with a Film & TV Production BFA and a jack-of-all-trades attitude, I've been working on music videos, weddings, short films, trailers, and documentaries through the independent company I'm founding with my filmmaking partners, Party of Seven Productions.


    My personal experience as a low-income, Latinx Trans person inspires me to infuse all my work with honesty, vulnerability, & reality, never forgetting a healthy dose of cosmic humor and the 3-point mantra: “Emotion, Rhythm, & Story.” I have a special interest in cultivating fearless, character-driven narratives for both fiction & non-fiction media, focusing on stories about gender & power-based harm, personal autonomy, complicated socioeconomic conditions, and unusual intimate relationships. Although I'm not married to any particular genre, I'm passionate about utilizing dark, comedic, & thrilling tones to convey the messages in my work.
