    Artist Statement

    I believe that art can lead to a revolution of ideas. I want to believe that artists, as cultural producers, have an unevenly strong hand in determining human consciousness. My hope is that by working with and for under-represented communities, we can together contribute to a broader movement for positive social change.

    A dual Mexican American citizen, I am a driven filmmaker, photographer, writer, and teacher. I am fueled by life’s joys, the pursuit of excellence, and the cultivation of others’ potential. Having worked professionally in the United States, Brazil, Cuba, France, Haiti, Mexico, Italy, Morocco, Spain, and Great Britain, I am dedicated to fostering social justice across international borders through the arts.
