I am a Mexican Interdisiplinay Artist and Theatre maker based in Brooklyn NY. I hold and MFA in Theater: Contemporary performance and a BFA in Dramatic Arts.
As an independent solo artist, I create visually strong-but-subtle pieces that touch sensitive wounds of my identity as a Mexican woman and an immigrant. As a collaborator I'm an exellent team player and strive to work in a positive creative enviroment.
