Actress - Voice Over Artist - Fi-Core Status
Born and raised in beautiful Costa Rica, I studied acting and graduated with a BA from the Castella Arts Conservatory. I continued my studies with a BS degree in Social Communications with a major 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.
Fluent in Spanish, English, and Italian, now I can successfully communicate in Portuguese as well.
I'm currently in the process of getting certified as a Holden Qi Gong instructor. I've been also practicing Reiki since 2020.
At the third Festival Viva Voz in Colombia, in 2022, I won the category of "Mejor Voz Demo" (Best Voice Demo). The Viva Voz Festival is an international awards festival that gathers submissions from all over Latin America.
At the Lavat Awards in Mexico, in 2021, I was one of three nominees for the category "Mejor Locutora Comercial" (Best Female Commercial Voice Over Artist). The Lavat awards are Mexico's most important VO recognition also gathering Spanish speaking talent from all of Iberoamerica.
