Felipe is an international Film and TV director who works fluently in English, Spanish, and French. And with “BLOOD AND WATER”, he’s proven he can also deliver an entire series in Cantonese and Mandarin.

It was a long road to make his first mark: literally walking illegally across every border from Nicaragua to the U.S., shooting the groundbreaking Nat Geo doc “WETBACK: The Undocumented Documentary”.

By filming illegal migrants on their real-life, perilous journey atop trains, and across rivers and deserts as they struggled to reach the elusive “American Dream”, Felipe helped their plight become part of our common consciousness, years before it was.

His foray into cinematography peaked when his camera work on “BLOOD & FURY: America’s Civil War” earned him an EMMY nomination and another at the CSC Awards.

He followed with his directorial debut: KIDNAP CAPITAL. Feeding off the heart-wrenching stories he witnessed first-hand while shooting “Wetback”, he turned a small indie production model into an award-winning feature film: a gutting character piece that earned praise on a successful international festival tour after premiering at the Shanghai IFF and at FANTASIA.

He then moved to TV, world-building new Series by directing Pilots and taking on full seasons of shows as director. He’s become a go-to when shows need someone to think outside of the box and elevate their on-screen value.

Felipe leans on his technical experience to give his projects a look and feel that goes beyond the words on the page by creating empowering character moments that anchor the narrative and supporting them with striking, impacting visuals, and telling them through his unmatched POV of the world.

He’s directed on shows like ABC’s “THE GOOD DOCTOR” and Netflix’s “SLASHER: Guilty Party”, and was called to take over and re-energize the second season of BLOOD AND WATER, guiding it to Best Drama nominations at the CSA’s and Leo Awards (and a Best Director nod at the DGC Awards).

He just helmed all the episodes of the spin-off season “FIRE & ICE” and recently conceptualized the on-screen tone and visual language of “RUBY AND THE WELL” and CityTV’s viewership-record-setting show “HUDSON & REX”.
