Most of my experience is in acting, writing and directing comedy films and TV shows. But I have used my creativity not only in the world of cinema but also in advertising, creating really fun and engaging commercials. A large part of my published work is in Spanish, but I have translated them into English so that you can enjoy part of my work. I recently wrote / directed my second short film in English in the United States. I won 3 film awards in Los Angeles, one of them Best Comedy in 2019. Be sure to scroll down to enjoy my comedy short film "Amerikana."
10 years ago, at 30, I won the First Place Prize and 30k on Showtime Network’s Latino Filmmakers Competition. At 24, I was already the star, producer and director of 2 successful TV shows in Latin America. I experienced all aspects of working in humor for a Latin American audience, then I worked for MTV Latin America, and after enrolling at Columbia University in New York to obtain my Masters in Film Directing, Showtime Networks rewarded me and my work.
I love to create and make humor through editing. For 6 years I worked at AmericaTV, a Hispanic television network based in Miami, Florida. I learned a lot about the Latino audience market in the United States, my job was to create, direct, act and produce comedy / creative content every day. Ratings skyrocketed and the network grew in its audience, due to my work.
Check out my recent award winning comedy short film "Amerikana!" 2019.
Part of my work includes content for children and the creation of fabulous concepts like this one. I want to keep creating, entertaining all audiences and making tons more! This is just the beginning!
My award-winning short film "Primer Día" (“First Day”) in 2001 opened the door for me in the US film market when I won the First Showtime Network’s Latino filmmaker contest. I wrote, directed, edited and filmed this movie. It is about the harsh conditions of a public High School in Ecuador, and how a young child learns a valuable lesson about what it means to thrive.
