Adonis is a native of Brooklyn, New York. Son of working- class parents who both migrated to the city from the Dominican Republic, he graduated from The School of Visual Arts with a Bachelors degree in Film/Video. While at film school, he landed an internship with Sun God Collection, a small company under Director Julien "Director X" Lutz. 

He just finished full production for his fourth short film, Civic Mind. He's written, produced, directed, and edited all four of his shorts. 

Today Adonis is unrepresented working as a New York based director.
