S Jorge Mena

Agent: Kristin Hardy
4445 Nathan Drive
Idaho Falls, Idaho, United States


Jorge started his award-winning career in broadcast journalism at age 15 in a local
Washington, D.C. Spanish-language station, the since defunct WFAN-FM. Over the last
20 years, he has traveled much of the world as a foreign correspondent and freelance
broadcast journalist. During that time he has also become a prolific writer of fiction and a
much sought-after essayist, not to mention an insatiable poet.
His works range from the existentionalist "Conversation with Fred," and "Penelope," to
the heartfelt—autobiographical— "Growing Up American: Memoirs of a Generation Lost."

A much sought-after copyrwriter for his notable humorous spots, Jorge continues to
quietly add to his already voluminous national and international credits in television and
radio. Combining his talents as a writer with his vast experience in television and film
production, he has also amassed a remarkable reel "reflective of a disturbed, albeit
creative mind," as long-time associate and producer Oscar Underwood explains.

In August 2002, his new publisher, Willow Publishing, will release: "Recollections of the
Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man," another superb novel from one of the world's best
kept literary secrets.

Interests: Fiction, essays, poetry, novels, novellas and copywriting.
