ABOUT MY WORK.

I’ve been described as an artistic mash-up of Rachel Brosnahan, Emilia Clarke, and Vivien Leigh:

an actor who is warm, funny, hard-working, with the fiery spirit of a Jane Austen heroine. 

 

As an actor, I’m in my sweet spot with an Aaron Sorkin speed and Amy Sherman-Palladino humor - I’m drawn to projects that are quirky, witty, a little dangerous, sometimes cerebral, and made for a smart audience. I also champion female-led projects, and I’m a sucker for any period comedy, particularly those that are created for a contemporary viewer. Think “Fleabag” meets “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

 

I was born in Mexico City and grew up in Latin America and London before coming to the U.S. for high school, and because of that complicated background, I’ve always felt like my work as an artist has tried to embrace a variety of world views and perspectives. As a writer/director/artistic collaborator, I’m always seeking out collaborations that are multi-disciplinary, that actively question the status quo, and confront my ever-expanding world view. That said, I’ve always been deeply rooted in the classics and find myself wanting to challenge what role the classics play in a contemporary society. My work as a writer and director has been described as “classic, with a twist.” My best, most dynamic, and most celebrated work always lives in that “twist.”
