I embrace my life work in storytelling.
Born in Rincon, Puerto Rico and growing up in Newark, NJ
I have spent most of my life figuring out how to tell a good story. And loving every minute of it.
In High School, while learning English I fell in love with movies, and would read countless screenplays in order to figure them out, and I would retype them to figure out the structure. I may have typed out an episode or two of The Facts of Life. (Hey, don't judge me!)
Eventually, I began to write my own stories based on what I had figured out.
Growing up in Newark, theatre was not a regular part of my life. I discovered the stage and playwrighting it at the University of Scranton, in PA. Eventually getting my degree in English Literature, Spanish Literature and Theatre (acting).
When I arrived on the east coast, I began volunteering at a few off-off Broadway theatres, and there I found that I loved writing for the stage. Writing a sequel to The Importance of Being Earnest that gave me some of the best times of my life.
Currently, I am working on the film Chisholm, about political icon Shirley Chisholm, being co-produced under the banner of my production company.
The mission of The MozzleStead Company is to explore the awe-inspiring transformative power of story and together with our audiences, develop a self-sustainable, investment and innovation friendly production company that harvests groundbreaking stories for film, theatre, television and virtual reality.
