I am a believer in the power of storytelling, be it through video, audio, photography -- or all of them together. As the child of immigrants whose parents left their home countries because of war and political turmoil, I know what it's like to have an interesting story to tell -- and it became my passion. Today, I've filmed or produced tv news, feature, online video and non-profit documentary stories in the U.S. and around the world. My production experience along with a broad knowledge of current digital news, social media trends -- coupled with my Spanish language ability – and camera and editing skills makes me an ideal candidate to take on your project, tell your story.
I find that this word is used a lot but is not fully understood. To me the most interesting multimedia projects are the ones created by the story, not the other way around. In other words, the story or situation should lend itself to multiple types of media if that will help make the story more impactful. If not, that's OK of course.
Documentary can be a beautiful or horrible thing to watch and experience -- or both. The best ones slowly unravel and reveal a visceral connection you may not have realized you had, or you knew you would have, and that is why you chose to watch. The story can be about anything, but the storytelling has to be about -- and make you feel -- something.
I love soccer because it requires an incredible amount of skill and endurance that challenges you physically and emotionally. The touches and the moves you make can range from subtle ones to powerful ones and knowing when to do what is a brilliant skill to own.
