A Los Angeles native, I relocated to New York City to study acting at Pace University, graduating with a BFA in Music Theater. Being someone who needs to do a little bit of everything i.e. theater, film, music -
a little bit of everything is exactly what New York's got. I see it as more chances to tell more stories.
And in the telling, there are few things more important to me than representation and reinvention.
I'm a card-carrying Queer, Mexican-American: I want to tell stories that shine the spotlight on LGBTQ+ experiences and people of color.
Recently, I had the chance to take on the role of Crutchie at Arena Stage in director Molly Smith's interpretation of"Newsies!" A beloved Disney musical, under Smith's direction, the company leaned into the experiences of immigrant children, class disparity, and today's current children's crusades as young people demand to be heard across the world.
Outside of auditions, you can find me behind a microphone or seated at a piano, accompanying myself and my friends in concert. I've been lucky to play stages at Rockwood Music Hall, 54Below, the Green Room42, and the Duplex.
