Born in Manila, made in California, Miguel first fell into filmmaking when he needed to figure out how to get his skateboarding footage from tape to DVD. Since then, he has gone from playing with cameras and editing software to shooting TV commercials, documentaries, and digital content. His short films have premiered in festivals like Tribeca, Nashville, and Santa Barbara. He has also worked with brands such as Chevrolet, Mitsubishi, Netflix, FILA, Johnson & Johnson, and FOX Filipino.
Often getting too bored to stick to one medium, he also writes and takes photos – mostly of places and faces.
