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 Leah Ryan Fund Prize, a finalist (still in consideration) for the Humanitas Angell Comedy Prize, and I received the Academy Gold Fellowship.
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 high concept, playful, and political. I’m interested in 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.
