Welcome to my Home Page!
Things have been quite busy around here and Summer is around the corner...
First of all, I would like to invite you to join me for a retrospective of my film and video work, which will take place on Thursday, June 28, 2007, at 8:00 pm, at Bresee Community Center,
184 S. Bimini Place, Los Angeles, CA 90004. The screening, titled "Holiday and other shorts", is open to the community, free of charge. Parking, also free of charge, is available. See map at the
end of the page. For more information and directions you can contact Bresee at (213) 387 - 2822.
In the past few months I have been appointed CSEA (California School Employees Association) District Vice President at Beaudry (Los Angeles Unified School District main offices) and I serve on
the Chapter 500 Executive Board. Therefore, CSEA members in good standing - with membership card, are warmly invited to the screening and familiarize themselves with the work that I do when I am
away from my duties as LAUSD translator.
Secondly, I am still involved with Culture Wrap Board of Advisors and I urge you to visit www.culturewrap.org. CW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promote cross-cultural understanding
through the use of media arts. CW connects filmmakers and film audiences around the world in an effort to engender multicultural friendships and cross-cultural collaborative partnerships.
If you are interested in contacting me directly to sign up for my 16 mm filmmaking workshop, make a reservation for the June 28th screening, program or purchase prints of my films or my stills,
you can do so by sending an .
Best regards from Los Angeles,
