For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a filmmaker. From a young age, I developed a passion for filmmaking, watching members of my family in the business. I would accompany my dad on film shoots and quickly learned camera and editing skills, I was hooked.
In 2016 I graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.A in Cinema, with an emphasis on Documentary and Editing. I then wanted to continue exploring filmmaking around the world and ended up in the city of Leeds in the North of England. In the spring of 2020 I graduated from Leeds Beckett University with an M.A in Documentary Filmmaking.
Throughout the years I have lived and worked in the U.S, England, Mexico and Spain. Each country has helped me flourish as a filmmaker and the fire in my belly has only continued to grow.
Growing up in a bi-racial house hold (with a Mexican mother and an American Father) really helped me to see the world in a unique way. I felt as thought I was able to see the world through 2 different lenses. I fell in love with documentary filmmaking because I realized how many stories there are out in the world left to tell. Stories of people, communities and cultures. I want to be a part of bringing those stories to life and helping make a positive impact in our ever changing world.
I am now based in the San Francisco Bay Area and continuing my journey working as an Assistant Editor and Production Assistant, while also working on my own projects and client films.
I am not only a passionate and hard working filmmaker, but I know what it is like to be through the grueling yet beautiful process of making a story find its way to the screen. It is not an easy road. Getting a film from initial concept to final product can be tedious, but I love every single second of it. I am driven by the desire to create films that will evoke emotion and really make people think.
Over the course of my career, apart from working on my own films, I have also gotten the opportunity to work on a wide range of productions at different capacities, including: Assistant Editor, Production Assistant and Camera Assistant .
Working as an Assistant Editor on various Feature Documentaries and projects. Including a Netflix Docu-series & a documentary in production with directors; Josh 'Bones' Murphy and Louis Psihoyos. I have also worked along-side Editor Jen Bradwell, Composer Todd Boekelheide and Producer Rebekah Fergusson.
I have recently worked with Reese Witherspoons production company, Hello Sunshine on various projects, including the feature documentary Fair Play.
