My reel is a collection of footage from my most recent projects. Watch more of what I've been working on below. 

 
 

 

DOCUMENTARY

OUT OF THE SHADOWS

Out of the Shadows is a short documentary that follows a cumbia band, Quinto Imperio, from Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood. It is the story of immigrants who are undocumented, unapologetic, and unafraid to fight for their future and for the future of youth from a community that is often misunderstood.
