Thanks for visiting my website!

 I am a professionally trained Latina Actress, with a degree in Acting from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. My favorite playwrights are William Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams and Anton Chekhov. I love contemporary plays and Musicals by Quiara Alegria-Hudes and Lin-Manuel Miranda. I feel deeply connected  to my Puerto Rican heritage, and I feel strongly about social justice. I believe in the power of the Arts to affect social change.

Favorite Roles so far:

-Millie in Millie and the Lords 

(Award for Best Actress, Best Film, Featured on HBO). 

-Odessa/Haikumom in "Water by the Spoonful".

        -Antonia in William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"

       - Mami in "Orange" by Maggie Diaz-Bofill

       -Mami in "Platanos and Collard Greens".
