I began performing at the age of five in music, theatre, and film, and attended Florida International University's School of Theatre as part of the BFA Performance program, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts in 2011.
Straight out of college, I made my directorial debut with Jonathan Larson's iconic rock opera musical RENT in 2012, and in 2014 directed a widely-praised production of Spring Awakening.
As a performer, my credits include Yazmin in Quiara Alegría Hudes' Water By The Spoonful, Sharla in Tracy Letts' KILLER JOE, Stephanie in Neil LaBute's reasons to be pretty, Angela in Gina Gionfriddo's U.S. DRAG, and Summer in the web series Saudade, currently in post-production for season one.
My love of storytelling led me to advertising where I've worked as a project manager and producer for the US Hispanic and General Markets creating work for renowned brands such as McDonald's, State Farm, Clorox, Pfizer, Tobacco Free Florida, PNC Bank, and Square.
Visual storytelling took front and center when I dove headfirst into photography. Shooting on both digital and film, I learned how to develop my own film, expose on paper, and went on to spend some time as an engagement and wedding photographer in South Florida.
all of this storytelling love influences how i live in my day-to-day. right now i'm really focused on delicious food, quality of life, and still creating cool stuff...so we'll see where that takes us!
