I'm a writer-director originally from Bogotá, Colombia. I moved to Savannah, Georgia in 2014 to pursue a BFA in Film and Television with a minor in Dramatic Writing. I graduated from the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in 2018, after which I moved to Los Angeles, and held roles such as the Latino Media Market Coordinator for the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP), and Development Assistant at indie production company New Artists Alliance. Most currently, I was the Contents Coordinator for the Bogotá Audiovisual Market, Colombia's biggest and most important film market.
I am a diversity advocate, passionate about creating content that explores how human connections shape and influence other people's existence. My film "Desde sus Ojos" (The Coffee Vendor - 2016) was sponsored by the Bogota Short Film Festival after its screenplay won the "Work in Progress" award in December 2015, and was a finalist for the Sundance Ignite Fellowship in 2018. And my student film "Still and Quiet" premiered at the 2018 Beverly Hills Film Festival.
I am currently working on developing my first feature film "First Call", and my short films "Aftermath", which was a finalist for the Bogota Institute for the Arts (IDARTES) 2020 grant for new filmmakers, and "¡salsa!", which has already participated in the Bogota International Film Festival's Short Film Executive Production Lab, in the Bogota Short Film Festival's Co-Production Incubator, and in the Bogota Audiovisual Market. "¡salsa!" was a finalist for the Screencraft Spring 2019 Film Fund and a semi finalist for the 2019 Colombian Film Development Fund (FDC).
