He discovered poetry, theater, and film in high school and later returned to it with full personal commitment.
On the stage, Omar has played characters like Shakespeare’s Prospero, Othello, Antipholus, and Bernardo in West Side Story, among other challenging works. He has appeared on shows like Ray Donovan, Community, The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, 24, Entourage, Heroes, and CSI. Some of his film credits include studio films like Disney’s McFarland USA and Beverly Hills Chihuahua, and independents like Mosquita Y Mari, Go For Sisters, and Weather Girl.
A creative consultant on films, plays, and corporate projects, in recent years, his focus has also included photography, editing, video production, and returning to his writing roots. His versatility as a creative is balanced with his background as a techie, graphic designer, and all around foodie!
