A second-generation Mexican-American writer, I have a strong passion (and preference) for feature writing. Through my writing, I hope to tell character-driven dramedies that explore and empower lives of everyday Latinos in difficult situations. Some of my greatest writing inspirations include Little Miss Sunshine, Moonlight, and Y Tú Mamá Tambien.
