I'm a borderland Mexican writer and filmmaker. My scripts and short films have placed highly and won awards in festivals and contests around the world such as the Sundance Lab and the Austin Film Festival. My prose work has appeared in the New York Times and the Rio Grande Review. My love of storytelling has stemmed from filmmaking and impacted different aspects of my life. And although I deal with different genres and subjects, my main aspiration is to bring unique, fresh perspectives to stories about the border. I feel they are necessary now more than ever. Currently seeking representation *Writes in English and Spanish *
