At the age of 12, Eduardo was sneaked in by his older brother to watch an R-rated Film: "Apocalypse Now." He instantly became hooked on movies. Born in Chile, Eduardo grew up with the ease and friendly manner of a rural kid. His imagination grew wild - untamed. Thus, coupled with his natural curiosity and free spirit – his love for storytelling was born. Eduardo uses his life experiences as a bi-lingual immigrant as inspiration for his writings. He writes stories that are considered footnotes in history books and explores points-of-view all too often ignored. His words are filled with fierce, enigmatic, sharp, and independent characters deeply rooted in their own narrative. Eduardo teaches screenwriting for TV and Film at CSUDH.
Let me tell you about myself. When I was 12, my older brother snuck me in to watch an R-rated film, Apocalypse Now. I instantly became hooked on movies. Born in Chile, I grew up with the ease and friendliness of a rural kid. My imagination grew wild. Thus, coupled with my natural curiosity and free spirit, my love for storytelling was born. I use my life experiences as a bilingual immigrant as inspiration for my writing. I love to write stories that some consider footnotes in history books—my work explores points of view that are all too often ignored. I try to fill my creative work with fierce, enigmatic, sharp, and independent characters rooted in their narrative.
