Leticia’s life and career has taken her from Spain to Ireland and from theatre to film. Initially going to the UK to study Drama, she then moved to Dublin to set up a theatre company with friends. After 3 years directing actors and puppets -very demanding this lot- she went back to study Film Production and fulfil a passion for visual storytelling. After graduating, her nose – and nosiness – led her to documentaries. In between, she wrote. As she built up confidence and found her voice in her adoptive language and country, she was drawn back to writing and directing live-action. She has since made several shorts and has a feature in development with Screen Ireland. Another feature and a series are also on the works – her voice, as it turns out, is tragicomic.


Leticia has also led and lectured in the BA year in Film & TV Production in Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education, in partnership with the University of Wolverhampton for 8 years. She’s a member of Women in Film and Television Ireland, The Writers Guild of Ireland and the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland.
