Classes: Acting
Classes: Public Speaking



My work spans independent film, radio, primetime television, and countless plays. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from the American Conservatory Theater and was thrilled to appear as Carmen in CBS’s The Education of Max Bickford with Marcia Gay Harden on primetime television. Additionally, I played the lead role of the good Dominican girl, Teresa, in the film 107 Street that had its world premiere at the New York International Latino Film Festival.

On stage, I performed in Medea with Tony Award winner Trezana Beverley at the National Black Theater and won an HOLA award for Best Ensemble Performance in Fireflies at Thalia Spanish Theatre.

For many years, I explored the boundaries of live performance in provocative movement theater with Elizabeth Mozer’s Theatre in the Flesh and Alethea Adsitt & Company. I created my own memoir performance piece, Giving Up Chino, as a company member of Visible Theater Company. Currently, I am a proud company member of Judith Shakespeare Company and Take Wing and Soar (TWAS), both of which focus on serving underrepresented populations in classical works. I recently played Imile in TWAS’ Massinissa at the Poet’s Den Theatre and Posthumus in Cymbeline with Judith Shakespeare Company. I am a member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.
