Nephtali Marin has been at PUC for the past four years seeking a BFA in film and tends to leave a lasting impression on everyone he meets. While forgetting him is not likely to happen, he wanted to make sure he didn’t slip your mind while he spends the year serving as a student missionary in Brazil. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder but just in case you’re starting to forget our friend Nephta, or haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him just yet, we asked him a couple of questions to help everyone get to know him better. And since he’s busy acclimating to life in a different country, try not to judge him for his short answers (even though we might just a little🤣).
What is your dream job?
DoP (Director of Photography) for narrative films. But honestly, I’m still figuring this out …
How does that compare to what you wanted to be when you were young?
Well, I wanted to be a doctor so I’d say it’s pretty different. I probably won’t be saving lives, but hey you never know!
What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Pioneers family?
We are all equal. Whether you are a 4th year, 1st year, or faculty, I’ve never felt like there is a hierarchy. We all experience similar ups and downs which help us become close.

My Abuelitas house on thanksgiving.
