Alcatraz View


I graduated with honours in BA in Communication Sciences from The Technological Institute of Higher Education of Monterrey. Additionally, I coursed an international semester in Regent’s University London.

I’m a two-time winner of the National Creative Writing Contest organized by the Technological of Monterrey and a two-time winner of the FemmeShorts Film Award for my work in screen playing. I also worked as the director of one of my scripts in the FemmeShorts initiative. The company produces short films to promote gender equality and fight against female violence. I presented my films in the 2013 Guadalajara’s International Film Festival.

A former human rights journalist, I later became the head of the creative department of the Technological of Monterrey library. There I worked as a community manager, content creator, media producer and illustrator.

Besides my freelance writing and illustration gigs, at the beginning of 2016 I started collaborating as a writer with the Spanish site of Matador Network.

Additional abilities

As a content creator, I posses skills in graphic design, photography and video editing. Feel free to contact me if you are in need of help for a project.
