I'm an art filmmaker in Las Cruces NM. Born and raised in the borderland of El Paso, TX, film degree from New Mexico State University, and surviving. There is nothing more important to me in my art than empathy. It dictates who I work with and what that work is about. We have to be vulnerable to really share ourselves, we have to care, especially through a video medium bent by how we choose to communicate with our audience, and what that artistic intention dictates is the best way to do so. This not by any means an easy thing to accomplish, and it should be hard. Its people. We are complicated. I love that, I love that so much about people. It's in art that I can exist this way, because in life I am simply struggling. Whether it be financially, security, or dealing with mental health damaged by a long history of adolescent trauma and pain. In art I exist, I love.
