Writer/Director/Producer
Los Angeles, California
Born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, and raised in Miami, Florida, I graduated with an M.F.A. in Film Directing from the American Film Institute, completed a Professional Advanced Certificate in Screenwriting from the University of California, Los Angeles, and earned a B.F.A. in Film Production from Florida State University. My AFI thesis, "My Backyard Was A Mountain", qualified for the Academy Awards, was the recipient of the Imagen Award, won prestigious grants from Kodak and Panavision, and screened at over one hundred and fifty international film festivals. A finalist in Esquire Magazine for my short adaptation, "Father Figure", I completed my debut feature, "The 7", two shorts, "The Stain On The Sidewalk" and "The Perfect Shot", and two promos, "We Are All Latino" and "Sue Wong: Beauty, Magic, Transformation". I was selected for the CBS Directing Initiative, the NBC-Universal Showcase, the Writers Guild of America Independent Writers Caucus, the McNamara Arts Project Grant, the Caucus Foundation Grant, and the Diversity Scholarship from the Multicultural Motion Picture Association. My new feature film is titled "Hollywood Whores".
