My biggest interests and influences lie within music, film, and film photography. Being native in both Spanish and English has given me the opportunity to explore a variety of social circles. The experiences from these circles have given me insight into different points of view and ways of thinking. I am a first-generation American. My family is from, and still resides, in Mexico.


My work is constantly being influenced by my life in the US as well as my frequent visits to Mexico and Germany. I am a graduate of Drexel University with a degree in Entertainment and Arts Management. I have received my Certificate of Writing and Publishing aside from my degree. I am currently a professional film photographer and a staff writer for Grave Reviews.
