I am a writer and filmmaker. I'm the author of twin time: or how death befell me (semiotext(e), 2007), winner of the Aztlán Literary Prize, the novel The Sad Passion (semiotext(e), 2013), and a book on the Mexican drug war, So Far From God (Whitney publications, 2014). My film Pat Steir: Artist (2019) has been called intimate and revelatory, and will be available on VOD in June 2020. I am currently working on a film about the conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner.
