Howdy!

I’m an LA-based writer, illustrator, and Latinx nerd
originally from South Texas where I taught High
School Theater for three years before pursuing my
MFA in Dramatic Writing at NYU.  As a writer, my
screenplay 
Rachel’s Quinceañera was a recipient
of the Cinefestival Screenwriting Lab in San Antonio,
which had support by the Sundance Writing Labs.  
I have also written, produced and/or directed some
short films and a web series: 
The Trainee 
(starring Raul Castillo), Night of the Hipsters 
(starring Maria Canals-Barrera), and Alma
(starring Letty Valladares and Cindy Vela).  
And most recently I worked as a Writers’ Assistant
on Starz’s 
VIDA.  

As a playwright, my full-length plays Chingon and 
Walter J. Freeman and His Real Deal Lobotomobile 
received a workshop production by the Skylight
Theater Company in LA, and my short plays have
received productions throughout the U.S.A.
as well as China.  And before finally breaking into
the scripted world, I worked as a field and
post producer for unscripted shows like The Flavor
of Love 
and the award-winning The Amazing Race.  

And finally as an artist and illustrator, I have created
comics, children’s books, and often get hired to create
artwork, graphic designs, logos and props for theater
companies and TV shows like How I Met Your Mother,
Fox’s DADS, as well Netflix’s Atypical.
