I was born in Cardiff, Wales, Great Britain, to Colombian parents. I grew up in Colombia and have been on stage since I was four years old. I studied vocal performance, dance and acting in Germany and Austria, before moving to Washington D. C., where I finished my undergraduate studies in Music and Musical Theatre at The Catholic University of America and performed in countless shows in the DMV area and New York City. I’m a singer, actor, dancer and theatre maker. I currently live in the Netherlands, where I am pursuing my Masters Degree in Music (at Fontys Hoegeschool voor de Kunsten) with an emphasis in acting and vocal performance under the wing of Edward Hoepelman. I am fluent in Spanish, English, German and French.
I have been blessed to have the opportunity of performing in Germany, Austria, Colombia and the United States (NYC and D.C.). I originated the role of Tita in the US Premiere of Laura Ezquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate. I have taken part in a wide range of theater art forms, like musicals, plays, dance shows, puppetry, devised, experimental and collaborative theater. Most theater forms fascinate me, and I take every role in every show as an opportunity to learn and grow as an artist.
Between 2018 and 2020 I wrote, directed, produced and performed in my own award winning web-series MARIAS: The Web Series (Best Comedic Actress New Media - Miami Web Fest 2019; Ensemble Amets - Bilbao Seriesland 2019; Best Comedy Short 2019 - LA Shorts Awards 2018). While working on MARIAS I discovered in me a big passion for writing, and it moved me to write two experimental short films that were produced in Colombia in 2020: ‘’LOVE ME WITH’’ and ‘’Nuble’’.
In addition to my performing career, I am a proud teaching artist with years of experience teaching children and teenagers. I’m a teaching artist with PASO NUEVO in Washington D. C. and a certified SEL teaching artist with DC Collaborative.
