Hi! Thanks for coming to my page!
I am a half-Colombian Sr. Social Content Producer, & Content Creator (writer, director, and producer).
As a Senior Social Content Producer at Conill Advertising (I’m also half-Colombian and bilingual, and happy to stand in during rehearsals--see below), I have continued to work on my own passion projects outside the demands of a 50-, 60- sometimes 120-hour workweeks…because, #adlife.
Because I am so passionate about creating original content, I enjoy working in production because of how much I learn. My vision is to work for a company that would give back as much to its employees, as they give. My intention is to work for a company that fully supports their employees’ happiness, physical, mental and emotional well-being. Or better yet: my intention is to help contribute to developing that environment in a company! I truly believe that is my calling to create and develop original ideas, incorporating LGBT, minorities, and women-led stories.
My goal would be to be a creative leader who can create manifest and hold this kind of space for creativity, fulfillment and joy from my employees and colleagues. Just “having a day job” just isn’t enough for anyone these days. We all strive for meaning, for authenticity and for a way to give back. We all strive to be aligned with our higher purpose and our true self, and yes, many of us want to make this world a better place.
I have been working in advertising since I started out as an Associate Interactive Producer at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in October of 2009. Up until that point, I had been an actor, writer, sketch comedian and director with Killing My Lobster sketch comedy group in San Francisco where I was a company member from 2003-2009. For six years, I was writing, acting and directing for nine months out of the year. Sufficed to say, when I began working in advertising, my focus necessarily shifted, but that creative core of generating ideas and material consistently has remained an integral part of who I am.
I received my B.A. in Theater from UCLA's School of Film, Theater, and Television, and am in the process of getting my certificate in feature screenwriting from the UCLA Professional Program (candidate, June 2017). As a graduate of UCLA, I was accustomed to creating on a daily basis and this “spark” of creativity is part of what defines me as a creative producer. As you will read my Linkedin reviews, I always bring the extra creative “tszuj” to make the project extra special, and for the creatives to feel truly heard and understood.
I even played a role in Stephen Soderbergh's "Contagion"—the Pharmacy Clerk. You can see all my credits on IMDB.
Thanks for visiting my page, and I look forward to meeting you!
