Humberto Carlos Guida is a writer, journalist, and producer.

His Gonzo-style story-telling can be found in a variety of magazines, books, short films, digital platforms and broadcast television programs. From underground subcultures to historical period pieces, "H.C" often explores the nefarious corners of American and LatinX culture and lifestyle, everything from the pop to the esoteric.

Born to a manic-yet-supportive family of Cuban refugees, and raised in the diverse cultural landscape of Miami, H.C. wanted to do something noble with his life like rally the world against evil and injustice. But after getting hooked on books and film he pursued changing the world through media and entertainment instead. 

An author and screenwriter, H.C. recently published the novel Fever, based on a true story about the Cuban-American pioneers of the 90's rave scene. He is currently working on a film adaptation of the novel. H.C. is also developing an original series inspired by his family's experience during the Cuban Revolution titled Straits of Fate, based on his award-winning pilot script. His short film Aho, which centers around an ayahuasca ceremony, is currently catching plenty of buzz on the film festival circuit.

 

As a journalist, H.C.'s work has appeared in major publications including Miami New Times, Miami Herald, Ocean Drive, Village Voice and Vice. An opportunity to produce content for multiple television shows on NBC Universal’s bi-lingual network Mun2, brought him to Los Angeles. Currently, Humberto splits his time as producer of LATV’s flagship talk show The Zoo and the nationally syndicated docu-series LatiNation.
