I'm a director, writer, and translator who crosses linguistic barriers via language-driven performance, reimagining poetry through theater and film.
Hailing from Puerto Rico, the trova tradition—which marries poetry with storytelling, music, performance, and improvisation—inspires my creative practice.
After completing my BHA and MFA in dramatic writing, and in film and theater production at Carnegie Mellon, I studied direction, performance, and translation in Argentina on a Fulbright scholarship.
I've trained in playwriting/dramaturgy with Rob Handel, Megan Monaghan-Rivas, Anne García-Romero, Migdalia Cruz, and Sandra Silveyra; trova with Nayla Beltrán and Wilson Saliwonczyk; direction with Carlos Ianni and Randy Kovitz; and acting with Thelma Biral.
I've also written, directed, and presented award-winning work in Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, the United States, Spain, and in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, among other countries.
