Born and raised in beautiful Costa Rica, I studied acting and graduated with a BA from the Castella Arts Conservatory. Then I continued my studies with a BS degree in Audiovisual Production, at the Universidad de Costa Rica.
After years of working in TV and film, in front and behind the camera, and working as a voice over talent for both radio and TV commercials, I moved to New York in 2014.
Now represented by DDO for Commercial and Print! Check out my Contact page for a full list of representation.
I'll be playing Maria in the short film "Avó", written and directed by Michaela Schaaf. Avó deals with how the matriarch of a Portuguese family deals with life after the death of her husband of 50 years, and how this has also affected her daughter and granddaughter and family relations. Super excited to be using some Portuguese in this project.
I have a role in the short film "Anonymous", directed by Michael Cultrone, which premiered at the New York Chain Film Festival.
My latest jobs include a Spectrum commercial and Spanish voice overs for JCPenney, Vagisil, USPS, NY Lotto, Altice, Bacardi, Nutella, Frito Lays, Pop Tarts, David's Bridal, and IHOP. Listen to my latest demo here.
At the New Short Play Festival - Season 6 (March 2019), I was awarded the Best Dramatic Actress award for my work on "The Match". A play I wrote called "Super Baby" was nominated in the Best Play category. And to complete the triple threat, I was also nominated as Best Director!
The short play "Talk Qwerty To Me", written by me and acted by me and Craig Woodward, won Best Play, Best Actress and Best Actor at the New Short Play Festival - Season 4, that took place in New York during May 2018.

I also wrote the short play "Parallel Universe", a thoughtful comedy about immigration, stereotypes and racism. The play was premiered this late September at the Season 3 of The Network Theatre Showcase, a 10-minute play festival with 55 plays. "Parallel Universe" was nominated for Best Play along with other 4 pieces.
