About me

Internationally-minded scriptwriter, film director, and consultant. I learned everything I know about filmmaking working in the industry for more than a decade, in all types of productions, from all corners of the world. In 2020, I have decided to put an especial focus on my work as a screenwriter, directing for television and influencing the industry to become more diverse. As an experienced WOC, and multicultural professional active in mentoring young talent and involved in activism and community work, I feel that I am especially well equipped to bring my experiences, knowledge, curiosity, open mind, and expertise towards pushing for inclusion in this industry, behind and in front of the camera. That always starts with good writing, building great characters with authentic stories, and coming up with creative solutions for entertaining narratives committed to impulsing change. And follows taking intentional, informed, and focused action at every level of production. As a writer-director, I have a strong commitment to truly cinematic storytelling that connects with an audience beyond the rational understanding of a film, but also at an emotional and sensory level. I am especially interested in futurism, science fiction, speculative and visionary fiction as playgrounds to re-think the world in which we live and what it could become, always with an eye on the social justice issues of today. I have recently moved to London (while still keeping my base in Barcelona for the moment) and I am looking forward to making new connections, get involved in new projects, and meet new people.
