I am me/Soy yo
I am the daughter of a Puerto Rican mother and a Southern American father. I come from the unique sound of coquis and the sway of flamboyan trees. I come from kudzu vines and the rhythm of sweet southern rhymes. I am me. Soy yo.
I journeyed from Georgia to New York City, where I received my BFA in Dance and Latin American Studies at New York University. During my time as an undergraduate at NYU, I had the opportunity to study dance and art in Cuba, Ghana and Vietnam, and I also took classes in performance studies and social movements in the Graduate school. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in the top 5 of my class.
I went on to complete the two year acting conservatory program at the William Esper Studio with a focus in Meisner technique.
I was the Executive Director of the multi-disciplinary performing arts collective SLIGHTLYaskew. With the company, I taught, performed and curated work in over five states. I have performed with various arts organizations ranging from Taye Diggs’ dance company dredance to force/collision to the Dance Exchange at Kennedy Center.
Since childhood, I have been actively engaged in human and civil rights issues. I believe that the arts perform an integral part in ensuring the freedom of all individuals and fostering a better understanding and appreciation for the diversity of human life.
