A shark coming out of the shower

Personal Tales

Mis queridas amigas and amigos, I am happy you are checking what tales I have under my sleeve! For a while, I hesitated to share some of the anecdotes and adventures I got into due to my naiveté or wild imagination. What if no one believed me? One day, I gathered my courage, sat down, and let my hand give shape to reality. Here are some true yet unbelievable tales that began in my childhood and continue to happen through my adult life.


Sharks in my Shower:
A whimsical story from my Colombian childhood!

It has been said that Magical Realism runs wild in Colombia; perhaps it is true! Growing up, I believed sharks could come out of the shower, and tall beds hid monsters under them. I feared water and falling off the bed. Showering would take me hours, and my bed shrank one inch per year. Come to discover how my fears came true in the quirkiest ways.

Paleta Girl: A story of coming of age

Growing up, I loved cartoons. They helped shape how I interpret the world and, sometimes, became a substitution for the reality that was shaking my world. Find out how I put in one of the fiercest fights to being let to watch cartoons and stop my papi from teaching me responsibility through work.

The fall of the flies and an ant shuttle to the stars

I have always been fascinated by insects. As a child, I held funerals for any dead bug I found. Little did I know that their lives and mine were intertwined. Join me in this fun show where a seeming pest invasion sheds light on humanity's history and what a box full of ants can predict about man's future.

School ghosts

A group of skeptics is determined to follow the squeaky and frightening crying noises and disprove that spirits have taken over a small town's school. Join me in this hilarious conspiracy where ghosts are more powerful than any other secret world organization.

Johnson City, my Nepal

People often ask me why I became a storyteller and ended up in Johnson City, Tennessee. My answer has always been, "It's a long story!" But at last, here is the story, more or less condensed.
