Welcome to my site!

I get to work in a world of pure magic. As an actress, they usually cast me as a gregarious, alluring, take-no-prisoners woman. There are more than 30 amazing films in which I have worked with incredible people. I am 100 % bilingual, in the English-Spanish languages. Training beginner level of wrestling / stage combat scares me but excites me! I started as an opera singer and toured all over Mexico before becoming an actress. I enjoy salsa dancing, love people and discovering the intricacies of the human mind. I recently debuted as a film director and producer with a powerful and empowering story; Altitude Not Attitude is an award-winning feature documentary, semi-finalist and official selection in over 20 film festivals including the IDA, the world’s most prestigious Documentary Awards, the Academy Award Qualifying Rhode Island Film Festival, and LA FEMME International Film Festival. Altitude Not Attitude, distributed by Gravitas Ventrues, is streaming everywhere! I could not be more grateful for the beautiful opportunities life has given me. There are more wonderful things coming up. So, click away, book me, follow me in all my social media pages, subscribe and join my parade.
