Personal Summary

I’m originally from Miami and started shooting videos when I traveled to do some missionary work in El Salvador and haven’t put down a camera ever since. I started filming weddings, then realized I could film them cinematically and tell a story with each couple. I realized I wanted to do more narrative and documentary-style filming and worked with some organizations to help them achieve their goals through storytelling.
