Los Angeles, California, United States

My passion in life has always been to tell complex stories with social importance through the art of cinema. Graduating from California State University Los Angeles with a BA in English, I spent my entire savings account to create my first professional short film. It is an honor and a pleasure to be competing with so many talented young filmmakers across the globe. Growing up, films helped make me more open minded and progressive, and I dream that one day my works will do the same.
