About Francisco

I'm Filipino-born, Cajun-raised, and Los Angeles-based. I'm a produced screenwriter and playwright. I've been a finalist in screenplay contests and have won a couple, the most notable being Screamfest. My writing strengths are action, horror, sci-fi, and comedy. DELIRIUM, a low-budget horror project which I co-wrote and co-produced, just won Best Feature at the Los Angeles Fear & Fantasy Film Festival. I've locked picture on the proof-of-concept for my sci-fi pilot which the producers are anxious to take out. Also, my award-winning comedy play, ANYTHING SERIOUS, is running at the Above The Curve Theatre in NoHo.

Unique traits: I trained at Gunsite and the Chapman Shooting Academy. I studied Aikido at the New Orleans Aikido Club for 8 years. And I've been an assistant Instructor in weapons and in Aikido.
