Narrative Film Director:

The Ninth Octave Films was started with a simple goal: to tell stories that have never been told before.

Check out my Nicaraguan short film project, "Volar en línea recta," shot in collaboration with Sweatpants Media and Fabretto Children's Foundation, in addition to a number of fantastic companies, such as Schneider Optics

"Volar" has been chosen as an official selection of:
Hollyshorts Film Festival
STARZ Denver Film Festival

Povertycure International Short Film Festival

Mt. Hood Independent Film Festival

Costa Rica International Film Festival

I recently finished another short film project, "Hungry Ghosts." Check out the kickstarter page here:
"Hungry Ghosts" has been submitted to select film festivals, so it is currently private, but if you're interested in watching it, please send me an email and I can provide a secure link.

I'm currently doing post production on two short comedies shot at Panavision USA in Woodland Hills, CA, and preproduction on features set in Nicaragua and Nepal.

Freelance Commercial Filmmaker: 

I work as an independent contractor on promo videos, music videos, commercials, films, and everything in between. I have experience working professionally as a writer, director, cinematographer and editor, in many cases acting as a one-man film crew.

I've directed spec commercials for Mofilm that have involved companies such as Purina (winner of Best Commercial at HSFF14), Pepsi Max, and CVENT. I've also produced videos for Fabretto Children's Foundation, Mayorga Coffee, Colorado Construction Institute, Intercambio Uniting Communities and more. 


I've had my work exhibited in New York City, Colorado and Copenhagen, as well as the cover of a Canadian-Nicaraguan guidebook.

My photo "Un salto tremendo" was recently selected as one of the 33 finalists in AI-AP's Latin American Fotografía 2 competition, as well as "Los Diez," a traveling exhibit of 10 photographs produced by Epson
