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.
