Anna is a 1st generation Cuban-Swedish filmmaker, TV writer, and artist based in Los Angeles and originally from Sarasota, Florida. She is the creator of the viral webcomic Bad Comix By Anna, which chronicles her struggles with anxiety, depression, and cheese.


Anna is currently a staff writer on the Showtime dramedy series, Flatbush Misdemeanors. Her half hour spy comedy pilot, Inside C*nt - about a vagina that starts transmitting spy signals - was named to the 2020 Blacklist Latinx TV list, and earned her a blind script deal with Hulu. Anna is a 2018 Sundance New Voices fellow, and a 2019 Women in Film/Blacklist Episodic fellow. Her short film Insomniac is streaming on, and she’s currently in pre-production on her forthcoming feature Ines Unfortunately.


Anna has performed comedy at the Upright Citizens' Brigade in LA for nearly a decade, including with her all-latina comedy duo “John Baxter”, most known for their viral parody, A Star is Korn. Their videos have been featured in Mashable, Vulture, WhoHaha, Consequence of Sound, and more. 

Anna is currently in development on an animated half hour series adaptation of her webcomic with Trevor Noah's production company, Day Zero. She is also in development on a live-action comedy series with Disney, entitled Genesis Queen of the Sea.
