About

Hello!

I am a Latinx-Australia writer and editor based in Melbourne.

I am mostly an essayist and cultural critic, with 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 and in 2019 I was a Hot Desk Fellow with The Wheeler Centre. You can read more about my Hot Desk project here.

Most importantly, 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. 

Here you can find examples of my work relating to writing, editing, and digital marketing. 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!

I am currently at work on my first novel and producing a podcast.
