I am Magdalena aka Nena, born and raised in the border-town of San Diego aka my-favorite-city-ever. I studied Television, Film and New Media, Chican@ Studies and completed a Translation and Interpretation certificate at SDSU. Since graduation, I have been working in the wonderful craft of storytelling via documentaries, short narratives, music videos and wedding videography.
My background as a documentary filmmaker has made me keen to the development of stories; of searching and finding that one element, that one line or crucial event that is the synthesis to the narrative. This practice is one I am intentional in applying to the wedding videos I create while keeping this notion present in shooting and editing.
Other things that make me happy? I enjoy creating things with my hands, urban gardening, biking, spending as much possible time with the lovely fam-bam and eating pretty much anything super super spicy (like really spicy, nothing can stop me).
