I'm a trilingual filmmaker, producer, and editor based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've produced work for The New York Times, CNN, People Magazine, Reuters, the BBC, NBC, NowThis, Seeker, AJ+, Univision, Vice, The Dodo, Pacific Standard, Singapore Airlines, Starbucks, 60 Second Docs, the Center for Public Integrity, and Light Reading, among others. I've also edited hundreds of videos for AJ+ and Seeker.
My most recent feature film, They Live Here, Now, premiered at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival before being acquired by Amazon for distribution. My 2016 film Dead Sites won the El Rey Award for Best Short Documentary at the Barcelona International Film Festival. It also won an Audience Award and a Jury Award at the Cine Las Americas Film Festival, as well as Best Short Film at the Boston Latino International Film Festival. Additional work has screened at Palm Springs International Shortfest, Cinequest, Sarasota Film Festival, American Documentary Film Festival, and the San Diego Latino Film Festival, among numerous others.
Basically, I like movies a lot. I like talking about them, making them, reading about them, and of course, watching them. The same goes for photography. If you're interested in commenting on my work, sharing your own work, or potentially collaborating, please feel free to get in touch. As far as non-filmmaking/photography activities, I like long distance running, the Spanish and Portuguese languages, and playing banjo.
Currently I work as a Video Producer and Editor for CBS Interactive at CNET en Español.
