Being Guatemalan-American is a big part of my story. I grew up literally in the jungle and very much secluded until I came to the states. My personal interests in film stems from a place of observation, color theory, and emotionality. Mainly, my passion is in story.

I’ve been a photographer since the age of 14 but somewhere along the way I became a filmmaker and have shot like crazy since then. I was then admitted in 2020 as a MFA cinematography fellow at The American Film Institute. There I was awarded the Audi Scholarship and graduated in 2022.

I am currently a member of the S.O.C. and WIF.

Best way to contact me is through email.
