Predominantly a writer (screenplays, comedy content, script consultation), I've been pushing into the production side of filmmaking for the past two and a half years on small films in the DC region. I've worked as co-producer, 1st AD, Wardrobe Designer, HMUA, and as a PA in set design and other departments.
After being selected for Sundance's Latino Screenwriting Project (a three-day writing lab for Latino screenwriters), and winning the Virginia Screenwriting Competition, both for my feature-length magical realist script, THE RADISH BABY, I decided to direct my first short.
One of my Sundance lab advisors, Michael Tully (PING PONG SUMMER; SEPTIEN), lives in Austin, TX - a great location for a short film I had written about a multi-generational Latina family called, THESE COLORS DON'T RUN. In no time at all, he had attached another producer, Wilson Smith (KRISHA), and I was in Texas shooting my film!
THESE COLORS DON'T RUN, is a short comedy with cojones y corazón ("balls and heart") based loosely on my experiences growing up as a creative kid in a religious family whose rules always made it difficult for me to follow my instincts, or to make anyone (including myself) happy. The main character in her adult form, "Yola" was inspired by a character from my Radish Baby script.
THESE COLORS DON'T RUN is a recipient of a 2016-2017 Arlington Spotlight Grant given to individual artists residing in Arlington, VA.
I am a member of WIFV DC, Arlington Independent Media, and the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP).
My hope is for THESE COLORS DON'T RUN to work as its own endeavor, but also to help to grow interest in my feature-length screenplay, which I plan to direct as well. In the end, my greatest desire is for connection, for people like girls, women, latinos, and people who feel, "outside" in various ways, to feel seen, and hopefully understood - to have their under-represented faces and stories on the screen, and to know they have value.
I am a director and writer for documentaries and cultural and educational television programs. I also work as a content creator for web pages, apps, and other media.
