"The Desk"
…In All Her Glory
Behind the scenes at CBS Miami


During my time at the University of Miami, putting together this half documentary half narrative film was one of the best experiences I went through.

This film is short—just under 5 minutes. But in that time it goes through an exploration of the power of imagination through David Leal, a man whose creativity releases him from the shackles of muscular dystrophy.

Done in Professor Ali Habashi’s Film Production class at the University of Miami, Spring ‘14. The idea was to start with a documentary and move into narrative; the final product was meant to draw from the style of Terrence Malick.

To top that all off, it screened at the 2014 ‘Canes Film Festival

Getting hyped for the World Cup thanks to Brazilian artist Cristiano Siqueira, who designed these posters for ESPN featuring the nicknames of each of the 32 teams competing.

Here are the two teams I’m rooting for!

Well put:


It’s the solemn anniversary of the 2010 Haitian earthquake. What happened there spurred so many to act in a humanitarian way. I saw that firsthand as a South Florida resident. South Florida, of course, is a region with a significant Haitian population.

On WVUM, I recently got a chance to take a look back at what happened, what was done to help and what has yet to be done. Take a listen to my interview with author Jonathan Katz, who wrote the definitive book analyzing the aid that went to Haiti in the aftermath of the earthquake.



Just realized that this video shot by my friend Taylor and edited by myself has racked up a few thousand views! Nothing we did though; it’s all due to the raw talent of our subject.

This was for our local Live Sessions series for Distraction Magazine
