Having worked as a student life and arts access advocate, he has previously completed internships with the Borscht Film Festival and is an arts liaison with the UChicago Arts Programming Office. At UChicago, he was distinguished as a Hispanic Scholarship Fund Male Scholar of the Year Finalist Award Recipient and has used this honor to elevate prospering Latinx scholars.
