As a storyteller and media junkie, I believe it is everyone's right to dialogue with the world. As a Mexican-born American immigrant with an Italian mother and Indian father, I believe diversity is essential. As a filmmaker, I know that it takes collaboration and know how to craft good stories that will be shared among the minds who scour the net everyday for inspiration and entertainment.
After studying film and storytelling for several years, traveling the world, and working in a variety of disciplines and positions from dish washer to TV producer, I believe it is essential to increase diversity in the digital landscape using the same techniques that are used by the biggest Ad agencies. While freelancing and producing my own work, I will be spearheading and collaborating on projects with Capital Hustle.
