Director of Photography
I grew up in Sugar Land, Texas spending my time breaking open electronics to see what makes them tick, and making short films with my friends using a mini DV camera. These pastimes developed into full fledged love for the art of creating bold, cinematic imagery with a foundation of technical cognizance. In my free time, I love designing & fabricating interactive creations with my 3D printer.
River is a jack of all trades producer-type who doesn’t have any straight friends. He originally grew up in politically conservative Orange County and was raised by a Latinos For Trump mom and a Trumpster dad. River’s conservative upbringing inspired him to create queer media for trans and queer people like him. After college, he moved to New York where he produced LGBT-focused videos for BuzzFeed News. He’s currently a freelance producer in LA, where you can find him biking on streets of Frogtown, perfecting the art of fermentation, and completely eating it in his attempts to surf.
