I was born in Guatemala and raised on Long Island. I love to draw from life and make stories in my free time. I'm committed to creating narratives that feature Latinx protagonists. I want to make stories young me would have loved to read. I believe diversity in children's media benefits everyone.
Good characters make stories memorable. These are characters from stories I'm working on and stories I wish I'd worked on.

I brought watercolor paper and a pen with me on my daily subway commute. I drew a lot of people and never once got yelled at. A few times someone would catch me looking at them, but I'd just avert my eyes and pretend I was thinking about the weekend. I colored each drawing with watercolors during my lunch break.
