Hey, I'm Anna!

Los Angeles, California

My name is Anna and I'm a latina writer, filmmaker, and artist based in LA. Back in 2013, I started drawing a little doodle that would eventually become Bad Comix by Anna (@badcomixbyanna) -- my Instagram webcomic that now has over 50k followers. Through my comic, I was able to process my depression and anxiety.

Since then, I've focused on TV writing and filmmaking. In 2018, I became a Sundance Lab fellow. I got an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA. My script INSIDE CUNT made it to the inaugural Blacklist Latinx TV List and garnered a blind script deal with Hulu. I'm also currently developing a live-action latina-led comedy series with Disney called GENESIS QUEEN OF THE SEA.

In addition, for the last 7 years, I've also been writing and performing comedy with my partner and fellow latina Heather Alarcón Higginbotham. Together we've made dozens of comedy videos, including one that went viral. We've learned filmmaking through doing, pulling together cast and crew through favors and our own money.

Through it all, Heather and I eventually formed our own DIY production company, Pickle Films. We were tired of seeing the lack of POC and female representation in film after film, and Pickle Films is our attempt to transform the industry for the better. Together we've produced dozens of comedy videos and films, including most recently the sci-fi comedy Foghorn -- which I wrote and directed.
