About me
As a writer and creative consultant, I am a specialist in developing compelling stories for broad audiences. In my 8 years of experience, I have created scripted and non-scripted audiovisual content for TV, streaming and web series. I am therefore able to think in multimedia formats and have a keen sense for dealing with local issues of global interest. In my professional path, I have honed my skills for seeking out compelling stories, as well as developing the ability to find the most attractive angle to build quality scripts. I am interested in contemplating the other, and I am in a process of constant self-reflection, allowing me to create deep and exciting characters. I am well attuned to the cultural diversity of Latin America, and my attention is focused on queer issues, music, nature, technology and social conflict. It is from my own imagination and constant observation of the world that I manage to build simple but memorable plots. In addition, my knowledge of different dramatic structures allows me to be assertive when choosing the right one for each individual story. I know the step by step of series development: from the germination of the idea, to the structure in narrative acts, the construction of the characters, the plot map, the sales bible and the writing of the dialogic script. I am attentive to detail, able to easily detect when a plot does not engage. I think about the coherent decisions that each character makes, and as a writer, I make sure that everything that I give the life of the character, has a believable meaning and purpose. I think that writing serves to express our hidden issues and show others that we are connected. The stories I create inspire those who receive them because they arouse their curiosity, dislodge them from pre-established schemes and remind them of a part of themselves.
