I'm a playwright, actor and filmmaker based in Los Angeles and Boston 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 link.
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 exploring the ways that identity is constantly being negotiated. How is ethnic culture bought and sold? How is queerness tested and earned? How does identity express itself differently through time?
