BIO

 

I was born and raised in, New York, to cuban parents. Thanks to their bravery to defect from their homeland, I had the fortune to be born in this country, speak two languages and enjoy at the same time the richness of my culture.  
At the age of 12, I moved to Miami, Florida, where I started dancing and acting. Immediately following my high school graduation I returned to NY and attended New York University for a career in dance. Since then, I’ve performed and worked with some of the most talented people in the industry, one of which was Beyonce. I had the opportunity to perform in West Side Story for Broadway. It was there where I found out that my true passion was acting. 
Ever since that moment I have educated myself in the field and performed in several shows. I have come to learn that when dancing, we can evoke emotions in the audience; however when acting we can transcend the emotions and create memories. Thats what I live for.
