Jimmy Mosqueda is a comedy writer born and raised in the deserts of Southern California, more specifically the Imperial and Coachella Valleys. Yup, he was at Coachella before it was cool. Growing up the youngest son of a large and eccentric Mexican-American family, Jimmy often finds humor in the awkward and embarrassing experiences of adolescence. He pulls from his own life to create characters and situations that are heightened and satirical but remain grounded in real emotion. In 2016, Jimmy was a participant in the Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters Intensive, where he workshopped his high school dark comedy, Valedictorian. He was a 2016-17 Film Independent Writing Fellow and a 2017 TV Writing Fellow with the National Hispanic Media Coalition. He has developed, optioned and written projects for several production companies, and his short film, The Station, premiered at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival.
"I think [being flexible with your story] is an important asset to have as a writer. Things can change and if you're closed off to it, and if you're not open to that change, your story might not go to that next level."
