After moving to Los Angeles three years ago, he began his journey as a writer/director, starring in over 10 feature films and plays, and having directed a series of short films including You’re Fucking Nothing, Open House, and Una Y Otra, Y Otra Vez.
In August 2014 he was invited into the Sony Pictures Television Diverse Directors Program where he worked with a series of current showrunners, Sony Executives, and highly established television directors like How I Met Your Mother’s, Pam Fryman.
On the heels of finishing his first feature, French Dirty, that he starred in, co-wrote, and co-directed, he is doing the same for his second feature which is currently ramping into pre-production. Presently untitled, it explores similar themes and is described as a modern take on “the 7 year itch.”
