Pedro is the Finance Manager at Kartemquin Films. He assists the Director of Finance & Operations in planning and organizing the activities of day-to-day accounting functions. His responsibilities include overseeing accounts payable, accounts receivable, monthly intercompany processes, and payroll.
His interest in documentary films stems from watching Spellbound at a young age as he prepared for a citywide spelling bee. Among his favorite documentaries are Man on Wire and Kartemquin’s own, The New Americans. He is enthusiastic about being part of the Kartemquin community and looks forward to continue learning the financial and creative processes of documentary filmmaking.
Pedro received his bachelor’s from Northwestern University in Communications with a concentration in Italian. Originally from Ecuador, he has spent the majority of his life in Chicago and is an avid supporter of the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
