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 I have worked in 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 inspiring story. Altitude Not Attitude won best documentary in a couple of film festivals and is Official Selection in 13 more. It will be in most of your streaming services soon. 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.
