I am a student filmmaker currently residing in Oakland, CA. I am a California native from Los Angeles, but I have spent a great deal of my life in the Northwest. I am Latino, statistically-speaking, but I was raised by two diverse parents in an equally diverse home. I strongly consider my multicultural background before I employ any labels pertaining to my ethnicity. This encourages me to make films inspired by my family’s rich cultural heritage with the hopes to entertain and empower minority people everywhere, especially first-generation Americans like myself.
