Paul Alberto Sanchez is a Puerto Rican author, screenwriter, director and film producer. He was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. He attended both Pueblo High and Cholla High School, where he first became interested in radio and television. His adopted father died when he was 16, so he moved to Saint George, Utah and finished his high school there. He graduated from Dixie High School in 1997 and attended Dixie State College until 1999. He became involved in the college radio program at the college, until it was closed in early 1999. He moved back to Tucson and began a career as a radio disc jockey at 96.1 KLPX until Summer 2002, when he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. He took a job as a news editor for KSL-TV, while becoming the executive producer of "The Block," a local high school sports television show in 2004. He returned to radio in 2005 in Idaho Falls, Idaho at 105.5 "The Hawk". He left the radio business in July 2006, returning to his hometown of Tucson. He currently resides in Seattle, Washington.

In November 2008, Sanchez released his first book, "The Tao of Sanchez." [1] Three years later, he has released his second book, a satirical tell-all of the television news industry called, "The Whores We Are." [2]

His venture into movies came in 2008 as well, investing in a low-budget horror film called, "Craig." In April 2010, he finally got behind the camera in a writer/director capacity, on his short film "Pocho."

In January 2011, Sanchez received a green light to shoot his first full-length feature film, "The Diary Of Babineaux." After ten months of stalling by the financing firm, Sanchez has postponed filming, but is still optimistic that he will begin filming in May 2012. He also has another script, "She Talks To Angels," which he plans to direct and produce before he begins work on "Diary Of Babineaux."

In August 2012, after delays on "The Diary Of Babineaux," Sanchez wrote and directed the short film, "Incommunicado",[3] which was shot and edited within thirty-six hours.

Sanchez has stated that "The Diary Of Babineaux" will commence filming in April 2013.
