I was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from where I immigrated to New York in 1985. Moved to Houston in 1992. I have a strong passion for ethnography documentary and for the past 20 years I've had the honor to collaborate with many people that are now friends and very dear to me. These collaborations have enriched my life in ways I couldn't imagine when we started this journey of documenting the communities we are/were so lucky to be a part of. These collaborations have resulted in projects that include: Co-director and editor or co-editor of five award-winning documentaries, Our Great Day winner of best music feature at the Austria International Film Festival, Down in Houston: Bayou City Blues, Texas Zydeco , Colores del Carnaval Dominicano and Cimarron Spirit, winner of best documentary feature film at the Georgia Latino Film Festival. Cimarron Spirit is been used as an instructional film in many universities across the United States, including Yale, Brown, and Tulane University among others.
