Welcome


I'm a playwright, actor and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, and New York, writing from and for the Latinx and African American diaspora.   

I came to the arts after nonprofit programs came to my public schools - so for me, the arts and social advocacy have always been linked. 

After years of performing, I started writing when I was disappointed with the roles available to me as an actress. I branched into film from there and I've been working in all 3 disciplines ever since!   

I write sincere work that fuses disparate genres with an eye toward social issues.  

I’m interested in stories that follow marginalized people through struggle for self-definition in a society that operates on stereotypes.
