I am a Latinx-Australian freelance writer and editor based in Naarm/Melbourne, on the traditional lands of the Kulin Nation.
I’m a Small Screens critic for The Big Issue and have bylines in Junkee, Meanjin, The Lifted Brow as well as others. In 2018 I was an inaugural featured author with Djed Press and New Review critic with Witness. I am a proud member of the West Writers Group with Footscray Community Arts Centre; a collective that cultivates the work of marginalised voices in Melbourne’s West.
Outside of work I enjoy playing with my dogs, tweeting about TV, politics, and what I’m reading, as well as consuming as many cups of tea as my tummy allows – white, two sugars please!
In 2019 I was announced as a Hot Desk Fellow with The Wheeler Centre – you can read more about my project here.
I am currently at work on my first novel and producing a podcast.
