Human Impact – Dustin Valdez

When Dustin Valdez was a boy, he struggled to stay on the straight and narrow. His parents had immigrated to the US from El Salvador, and his neighborhood was plagued by drugs and violence. Dustin was just another LA kid, looking for his “thing.” But where many of his friends found gangs, Dustin discovered skateboarding. And that has made all the difference.

Had the opportunity to direct one episode of the Human Impact series. Skateboarding has been an essential part of my life, so it felt natural to work on Dustin story.
