I'm fueled by a curiosity about people and a passion for authentic storytelling using multimedia. I've written, directed and produced various content including screenplays, music videos, commercials and films.
In 2018, I produced my first feature documentary, ‘BIKELANTIS’ about bicycle culture around the United States as it follows my friend and filmmaker Manny Cervantes on an autobiographical sketch of his love of people and communities centered on bike-friendliness.
My directorial debut, PRIME TIME, premiered at Filmed in Broward (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida) in August 2019.
I’m currently writing and developing several film projects and always looking for opportunities to work and collaborate with creative individuals.

She needs to ride everyday to survive. Tara’s aura is powerful and captivating but you wonder, who is this crazy lady? How does she make that thing go? What is that thing? “The trikke is not a scooter, it's not a bicycle, it's not a car. It defines a new category: CV - carving vehicle. From head to toe, riding a trikke CV gets your whole body involved. Your arms are punching, your legs are pushing out of each turn, and your core is holding it all together. A full-body workout like no other.” It will change your life! Featuring Music by MOBY & ATARILOGIC #PrimeTimeTrikke #trikke #shotoniPhone
Documentary by Bad Carman/Manny Cervantes (Documentary) Producer Since 2012, Director/Producer Manny Cervantes was working hard on accomplishing one of his dreams, a feature documentary on bicycle culture around the United States. In filming BIKELANTIS, he toured the country for over two years, chronicling his various tours and interviewing cyclists of all stripes to get a perspective on what is advancing cycling in their specific cities. BIKELANTIS is an exploration of bike friendliness and how cycling is changing communities. The documentary explores more than 20 cities and looks at bike shops, bike sharing, advocacy, bike touring and many other topics affecting cyclists nationwide. Lafayette, Indiana is featured as a vibrant, cycling community where biking is evolving and the Hood Ride Bicycle Shop in Phoenix, Arizona is showcased as an example of a fully realized bicycle habitat. BIKELANTIS envisions a bike universe with a strong sense of community that is part of a healthier, creative lifestyle with a global capacity for compassion between neighbors and ultimately, bike friendliness. Shorty after completing principal photography, Emmanuel “Manny” Cervantes, 35, of Lafayette, Indiana, passed away on May 15, 2014. Manny was a creative thinker and an energetic force who made lasting connections with many people in the communities he visited. Being with him typically included riding bikes, taking chances, thoughtful talks about art or bike culture, and some laughs. In filming BIKELANTIS, Manny rode around the country seeking out diversity in cycling experiences and searching for this bike utopia in real life. While Manny is no longer with us, his dream to uncover and redeem Bikelantis lives on. This is BIKELANTIS. #Bikelantis #livelikemanny - Bikelantis.com
