As a filmmaker, I have a keen eye for what feels and looks right in cinema and I understand one single frame can make or spoil a video; as a journalist, I have an insatiable desire for people's stories and know how to convey a narrative in a way that fits today's media landscape.

From these, what has resulted are a series of multimedia articles and mini-documentary videos, which you can see for yourself on my web site: http://www.juandavid.org/resume

Though I love reporting and writing, lately the bulk of my work has centered on producing and editing videos as well as animation. 

After leaving my job at AAAS to travel, most recently I've worked on-the-ground and remotely with various refugee aid organizations in Greece and France documenting and photographing the experience of refugee migrants from Syria and other nations through short videos.

These experiences resulted in two short independent documentary films, which are currently in post-production.


Previously worked as Communications Officer at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) doing animation, writing, photography, and video production/editing. Throughout my tenure, I shot and edited a diverse set of videos locally and out of state with AAAS and its partners at the Department of State under initiatives such as the Global Innovation Through Science and Technology (GIST).
