I am a Latina award-winning producer, writer and director based in Vancouver, Canada. Over the last 15 years, I created content for TV, Films, Social Media, developing strategies for B2B and independent productions. I managed branded content, leading cross-functional teams, creating marketing and internal communication plans.
I worked on award-winning films and television shows for channels such as The History Channel and streaming services such as Amazon Prime. I created concepts and content strategy for clients, reaching 30mi viewers on TV and over 500mi views on Youtube.
As an independent documentary director, I lean towards social justice topics, giving voice to the voiceless and shining a light on the importance of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
I hold a Ph.D. in Film and Television Studies and an MA in English Literature and Cinema. I worked as a lecturer in three acknowledged Universities in Brazil, teaching about filmmaking, creativity, and writing. As a visiting researcher at the University of British Columbia, I led an investigation into the portrayal of female characters in sitcoms.
I have three books published:
A Series of Funny Women: 7O Years of Female Protagonists on TV (available for purchase here)
From Dead Until Dark to True Blood: A Comparative Analysis of the Narrative in the Novel and the Television Series (available for free here)
