I'm a playwright, actor and filmmaker working from and for the Latinx and African American diaspora.
In recent writing news: I’m the winner of the 2019 Leah Ryan Prize, part of Ars Nova ANT Fest, and a finalist for the Humanitas Angell Comedy Prize.
I found the arts when nonprofits came to my public schools - so for me, the arts and social advocacy have always been linked.
My writing is imagistic, political, and playful with a punch. I’m interested in the intersection between capitalism and culture, and the ways that identity is constantly being negotiated.
I have a BA in English from Columbia University, and I’m working towards my MFA in Playwriting from Boston University
