Director Statement

I want to breathe new life into the underrepresented Chicano experience and bring the audience closer to me through my stories. I desire to use storytelling as a tool to bring the audience into my world, a world that mainstream media ignores, or when it does “shed-light” on it, it’s done from a stereotypical outsiders point of view. Debunking those stereotypes and connecting with people emotionally is the reason I make films.
