AMAZING ALLIE CUERDO is an Emmy-nominated writer, director, producer and author, recently named one of the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women In the World by the Filipina Women's Network. Their work fuses fantasy, documentary and activism, with a focus on stories that uplift underserved communities and center joy.

In 2021, they received the Logo30 award given to LGBTQ pioneers, activists, entertainers, political figures and artists who continue to move our community forward. Their work includes emblazoning the first ever transgender flag on a PEPSI product for LIFEWTR x LIFE UNSEEN with Issa Rae, SPOTIFY PRIDE x CLAIM YOUR SPACE with Big Freedia, and NBC’s INTERNATIONAL PRESS FREEDOM AWARDS with Meryl Streep, Amal Clooney and Filipina Nobel Prize-winning journalist Maria Ressa.

In 2019, their feature directorial debut ULAM: MAIN DISH became the first Filipino food documentary to achieve worldwide distribution on Hulu and Amazon Prime. Named one of the 20 Best Books of the Year by Amazon, their first book AMBOY: Recipes From the Filipino-American Dream was subsequently published by Mariner Books, an imprint of HarperCollins.

Always an advocate for equality, they have spoken at Google, Spotify, Yale and at the Teen Vogue Summit about their career as an openly queer Asian director and cancer survivor. Their work has been featured in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, BuzzFeed, Vogue, New York Magazine, PAPER, Filmmaker Magazine, Variety, Deadline and more.

Based in New York and Los Angeles, they are a proud part of BUBBLE_T, a collective of friends and family that throws the biggest, queerest Asian dance party in New York City. Currently, they are working on a TV show titled ALL I WANT IS EVERYTHING based on their experiences in New York City's underground rave scene.
