From a young age, Cristina was fascinated by Catholic lore which touched less on religion but more on themes of love, war, family, violence, mortality and power. While devils and angels filled her young mind, she also noticed something important missing from these stories... women. Strong women, like her mother and grandmother who raised her. Cristina’s stories are inspired by women like them whose lives were shaped by dominant forces like masculinity, religion, or societal norms. Women who found ways to break down these walls of oppression and resistance in order to thrive.

I’m a freckle-faced, redheaded, first generation American whose parents hail from one of the most violent, drug-controlled regions of Mexico. I grew up in Los Angeles and lived in constant fear of authority because I was always afraid someone I loved was going to be deported.

It's through this lense that I tell stories.

I was raised in a small white Oregon town that deemed every Latinx a "Mexican". I didn't seem to fit in any of their boxes. My abuelo from Spain, my abuela from Guatemala and my grandparents who were ex-communicated Mennonites from a colony in Chihuahua, Mexico all have heroic tales. I traveled the world searching for my story and truth; for the essence of humanity. I've found that art, music, and comedy make up my holy trinity, and oh, how I worship thee!

A misfit kid from Texas who made up her own episodes of The Jeffersons. Comedy was my way out of an often abusive and dysfunctional home life. My early influences were Richard Pryor, George Carlin, GIlda Radner, Carol Burnett and Mel Brooks.
I started out on a path to a career in entertainment, but got sidetracked by a 20+ year career in the oil industry. When I was laid off in 2015, I took my gold watch and severance check and moved to LA and haven't looked back.
10 years sober, I know the pain of losing it all and joy of being given a second chance to rebuild my life from the ground up. Because I came to writing as a career later in life, I bring a wealth of life experience and a professionalism of someone more seasoned. I can (and have) taken network notes with grace and know how to turnaround work on a tight deadline.

When his middle school principal found out why he was falling asleep in class, they called up the shop and got him fired. From then on, Austin worked constantly: for a landscaping company, washing golf carts at a golf course, as a busboy at a crab shack, sorting trash at a landfill.

I love characters who similarly exist somewhere "in between," who not only help to expand this existing, working definition of Latinidad, but who else help to normalize the Latinx experience overall. I'd describe my voice as authentic, unapologetic, and painfully self aware.
