Marco Ortega

Born in Panama City, Panama, we migrated to the Unites States to find new opportunities for our family. The new opportunities that were open to us came with quite a bit of adversity. A new culture, language, community and expectations were just a few of the challenges that we faced, but were valuable to shape my life. Moving to different states and cities in America, meeting new people, learning new things, and experiencing a variety of cultures and communities, these experiences etched an everlasting sense of gratefulness to live in a country with so much diversity. I was fortunate enough to attend university and gain experience and knowledge in the creative world of filmmaking. Throughout the years, I have been able to travel to various parts of the world and continue to learn from different cultures and people. The experiences throughout my life has given me a passion to help me tell story and share it with everyone. In 2003, I graduated with a BA in Radio, Television and Film from the University of Houston, GO COOGS! I have worked in all areas of the media industry. From radio, news, independent films and documentaries to sports and short form videos. I enjoy collaborating with like-minded artists and will enjoy some great conversation over a tasty beer or some delicious coffee. If you have inquiries about producing a video or collaborating on an exciting project, I would love to hear from you.
