I’m a Mexican-/Filipino-American amateur writer who revels in exacting revenge on my bland All-American upbringing by writing hard-hitting, violent stories laced with unexpected humor and heart.

I don't write in one genre, but the thread running through my scripts is this:  my stories expose and malign injustices experienced by those who’ve been under the proverbial thumb of ____________ [insert oppressor here].

In 2019, two of my scripts advanced in the Nicholl Fellowship competition.  The first cracked the quarterfinals; the second made it into the top 10%.  That latter script also landed as a 2nd Rounder at AFF.

I earned a BA from Stanford and an MFA from Loyola Marymount.

Note:  If anyone here downloads one of my scripts, please feel free to send any notes -- criticism or praise -- in a private message.  I welcome your thoughts, however brief.  Thanks and be safe!!
