La vida da vueltas

Almost a year ago, I made some big moves! I went full-time with my freelance creative career, I got a dog, I learned so much about myself. Like the way water cuts stone, all the fast paced life transitions have carved a new path in my career and life. I’m super proud to share the great news with yall:


I’m the new Grants Manager for Houston Arts Alliance

Houston Arts Alliance has a direct and significant impact on the arts landscape in Houston and I’m so honored to be in this new role. I’m learning so much! This position is a perfect alignment of my business acumen and artistic endeavor. I’m so happy to be working with this incredible team at HAA as well as Houston artists and arts organizations. I plan to fully immerse my senses on all things art in Houston. There will be so much H-town culture on my social medias, look out.


BYE NYC - I moved to Texas

After 8 years in NYC, I have crossed off my New York bucket list. Brooklyn midnight adventures, check. Cry in the park, check. Cry on the subway, check. Talk to my high school crush on the subway, check. Visit the World’s Fair in Queens, check. Speak at Twitter, check. I’ve learned what I needed and could ever possibly want in that tiny concrete island. I will always have mad love for NY! Aint nobody can do a bagel like Tompkins Square Bagel in the East Village.  Of course yall know, my heart has always been in Texas. The day I was packing, was the day Solange’s latest album, “When I Get Home”, dropped. I took this as a serendipitous sign of coming home. So catch me around H-town and teach me the ways of cheaper real estate in Texas.


LA, I’ll Be Seeing You Soon

Another big news is that I’ll be presenting on a wonderful panel with amazing Salvi women for the LA Times Festival of Books on Sunday, April 14th. Karla Vasquez, Yesika Salgado and I will be in conversation with la maravillosa Marty Preciado. Check out all the details here. SO EXCITED!!


I’m still making art

Art saves me. I’m settling into these life transitions and my deepest love will always be art. I’m being gentle with my creative process and allowing it to flow in whichever ways it comes. All that flowery language to say, I’m working on some stuff. I do plan to do some events in Houston (and wherever yall want me to present with an honorarium, drop a line here). I’ll be releasing the new stuff as it comes through.


Thanks for being part of the journey! I’m really excited for what the future holds and best believe I’ll be writing about it. Hasta la proxima.

I'm Performing with VHS Presents: Family on 5/19

I'm Available for Hire
April 30, 2018 marked my last day at my full-time job at a nonprofit. I had a great 7 years at that job and I'm ready to move on to greener pastures. This means I'm available for hire in the following fields: translations jobs (Spanish/English), transcription, freelance writing gigs, business analyst and management consulting (nonprofit/profit). Shoot me a message if you have any leads or words of comfort as I enter this new phase of my career.

I'm Turning 32
I love my birthday so much. I'm thrilled to be aging gracefully in L.A. a few days before the L.A. Zine Festival. Even though I'm another lady without a baby (in my culture, that's a big deal), I am finding peace where I am in life and truly living my best life (especially with my cute little dog). My Venmo and Paypal are open for birthday gifts!

Thank you again for all the words of encouragement and support.
I'm eager to see what the future holds and I'm ready for it!
