Mexican-born, Canadian director, editor, and producer with 13+ years of experience, focusing on horror and genre-related content.

My work as an editor for broadcast advertising and documentaries not only informs my directing style and perspective but also my approach to being a resourceful and versatile creative.

Among my highlights is participating in the Horror Development Lab at Blood in the Snow Film Festival in 2022, directing 2nd unit for the documentary "Dogsville" (2020), and Co-editing the CBC feature doc "Her Last Project". 

My short film "T-Minus" (2018) garnered multiple awards in Canada and the UK and was included in the anthology feature "The Impact" (2022), while also having received funding from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Calgary Arts Development for the creation of multiple fiction projects.
