I don’t remember there ever being a point where I did not know what I wanted to do with my life. Ever since I was a child growing up as a first generation Dominican/Portuguese - American in Peabody, Massachusetts I knew I was different. What I dreamed of was always different than everyone around me. I wanted to inspire and spread love.
I began writing music at a very young age as a way of expressing myself. I got my first piano when I was ten years old. I would sit in my room, play piano and write songs in my journal. I would force my family and friends to watch me perform my songs, (bless them for tolerating me) and create choreographed dances with my best friends. I started performing at local venues and gained recognition. I have always been influenced by music and it was no surprise that the same passion I experienced came with acting and dancing.
Recently, I moved to New York City to pursue my dreams. I graduated from Marymount Manhattan College where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Acting with a minor in Musical Theatre. I have been studying and training in the arts for 13 years. I studied hip hop, jazz, ballet, contemporary, and latin styles. I am very humbled to be living my dreams performing in New York City. But I still have my childhood dreams. Till’ this day I still write music and have recorded an EP. I am a very passionate person with a desire to experience life to the fullest. I am not afraid of anything. I belong to no one because I belong to everyone else. I came from nothing, wanting everything. I used to question my individuality, now I embrace it.
