I remember the day I fell in love with stories through the Kaliman comic books, El Chavo del 8 tv show from Mexico, and “The Goonies”. My passion for listening to crazy stories from my dad or uncles took me on a trip every time. Later in life, I found a new love, filmmaking. To my luck, my two loves go together like butter on warm toast. I successfully ran a production company called Grupo 7 and taught screenwriting for short films. I’m constantly in my head or writing trying to come up with ways to share my stories and other people’s journeys via video production. After many years of directing projects in Latin America and New York, I made Boston my home. Aside from being obsessed with storytelling, I’m a decent cook, a lifelong martial artist, and the proud dad of a beautiful little baby girl named Ella Hope.
