Parra has collaborated both as an Assistant Director and now as a Producer, with renowned directors such as Alexander Payne, Peter Yates, Oliver Stone, James Cameron, Michael Bay, Rob Cohen, Martin Campbell, Jay Roach, and David O’Russell to name a few.
After Graduating from San Diego State University, with a degree in Film and Theatre, he began his career working as a Production Assistant with directors such as James Cameron and Francis Ford Coppola on their films THE TERMINATOR and PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED.
A member of the Directors’ Guild and Producers’ Guild of America, Parra has been steadily producing a number of films for various companies as well as developing his own projects. Fluent in Spanish, he currently resides in Deer Valley, Utah.
