100 Creatives

61: Ernesto Moncada

When we last put the spotlight on 100 creative forces in Phoenix, it was no secret there were more than 100 individuals who were making waves in the local arts community. So as we count down to our annual Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome (back) to 100 Creatives

Ernesto Moncada wears a (very large) number of hats.

He was born in Mexico City and has been living and working and living in downtown Phoenix since 2001. He's the published author of "Cayendo" (a novel, 1999), "Siete Pares de Ojos" (short stories, 2000) and "Posias Malias" (poetry, 2011); a spoken word poet and cartoonist; an actor (as seen in the New Carpa productions The Eagle & the Serpent and American Pastorela) and a stand-up comedian.
