Rafael Hernan Gamboa

A Los Angeles native and a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Rafael is an award-winning writer, director, and video editor.

In his free time, he makes video essays about film and television on his YouTube channel The Long Take, a few of which have been featured on the A.V. Club, and texts “we should hang out sometime” to other 30-somethings as if anybody can even do that anymore.
