Poster for my latest film.

I grew up in Crystal City, Texas, located in one of the poorest districts in the country. There weren’t many in-school pathways to an exploration of the arts. That didn’t prevent me from teaching myself about illustrating, writing, and film. Later, I attended UTSA where I met some of the people that would help me understand that I wanted to turn my hobbies into a career. Since then, I’ve worked on my skills by creating different projects over time. I’ve always been drawn to the process that goes into fulfilling my vision and making something that connects and can start conversations. I hope that my work can both express myself, share my feelings about the world, and give some insight into people. Particularly the Latino/a community.
