About Me

I am a Mexican-American currently based in Montreal, Canada. This coming fall I will be pursuing my university studies in film at The New School in New York City. 

Throughout my academic career, I have found one of my greatest passions to be social justice issues, for which I strive to find solutions. I have explored many ways of involving myself in my community to better understand these issues directly, such as leading the Gender and Sexuality club at my high school, partaking in competitions in which students must create their solutions to gender inequality, and volunteering with Cinema Politica at Concordia University, in which we screen political films weekly. 

Apart from standing up for issues I strongly believe in, I am also an artist. I take part in all forms, such as painting, drawing, photography, film, and writing. Recently my amateur short film “The Prey”, which was created as a school project, was voted first place in every single category within my school’s film showcase. 

For the past two years, I have been following the Montreal-based rock band “Zappien”, as they create and finalize their new album titled “The Good Enough Days”. Through this internship, I worked as the band’s photographer and the co-director and filmmaker for their documentary on the making of the album. Last year, I was able to film alongside them as they recorded at the infamous Abbey Road Studios in London, England.

I continue working hard to find ways of telling the stories of people facing injustices, and the stories of people living authentically.
