Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?

Producing gets my creativity in visual and sound effects at its highest level. Modeling makes me master the art of expression on camera and martial arts contributes to my combat choreography scenes. I’m passionate and driven in my professional career. I exemplify a work ethic worth being proud of. Here is a graphic sample of my passion. https://youtu.be/UzQu29pvg5U
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
Qualities such as commitment, discipline, devotion, vision, retaliation and determination are definitely on my list. Every single film project I direct, produce and act on is well defined in it’s structure in order to attain a successful process and outcome.
Covering those details that generate visibility, increase the viewer’s acceptance, optimize the budget and that yield in productive marketing strategies is very important from the standpoint of a performer to the perception of an executive producer. I see myself as a product and my qualities go along with using the most effective tools to increase my versatility and value in my professional skills.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I showcased a groundbreaking performance on a film that was awarded and nominated on various United States film festivals. I grudgely slashed the neck of my victim after displaying a master ‘despisefull character role monologue’ on set. All the crew and actors on were astonished and in silence witnessing my breathtaking performance. When the cut came by, everyone started clapping and proudly praising me.
Most importantly, my director. I knew right away, I could captivate the cameras and generate a compelling cinematographic reaction that was authentic. I knew by fact I possesed this glowing artistic talent, which I’ve been working on and making flourish over the years, stablishing a solid and seasoned professional film career.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
All the challenges I’ve overcome have led me to surpass my expectations and to grow personally and professionally. I’ll mention the most recent change I went through on March 19th 2023.
On a martial arts competition my nose was broken courtesy of a cheap shot. My nose was twisted and I knew I needed attention immediately. The competition had been recorded. I was shocked by this unexpected tragedy. But it was right there that I knew I had 2 choices: cry and wine over this or do something about it. I chose option 2. I had my camera on the car. So I said to myself: ‘I’m not letting this stand and happen for no reason. I’m not letting this define my immediate future. No way”. So I told my girlfriend to please grab my camera and while I was driving to the hospital, to film me on the wheel. She was looking at me awkwardly.
As a drove, my words flowed out of my mouth and my mind started to build an instant riveting script from the get go. I was indeed and surprisingly giving life to a story after an accident that wasn’t supposed to happen. I just knew I had to find a way to move forward from all of this. I arrived to the hospital and the doctor made me jump in scruciating pain!! He inserted these long metal tubes on my nose and started twisting them while my bones were cracking like eggshells. I pinched my leg to try to ease the undeniable pain and once in a while unleashed some violent war cries to honor my fighting spirit.
After 45 minutes of struggling to not give up, he had put my nose back to its place and enhanced it with a plaster cast. Again, I said to myself: “I’m not letting this monstrous pain be left in impunity and printed on a hospital invoice”. I just went for it: “Hey doc, I’m working on this film, I’d love you to be part of project and play your role since you did a wonderful job”. He happily accepted my offer and we did various takes. All of them were visualized on my mind and were building a growing script fueled by the moment and unfortunate situation.
My creativity played a big role on the story since all of this wasn’t pre-planned. I now had a tournament footage and various hospital scenes for my film. Everything was building up. Out of adversity I had created a stepping stone to produce an upcoming film that wasn’t even in talks. Here’s my awarded DATE MY NOSE film. https://youtu.be/xK_e49r-tfw
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
