My Story

My love for storytelling started when I first watched The Sound of Music as a seven year old girl. I also have a vivid memory of watching my grandma perform live and being marveled by the magic created on that stage. I started writing scripts and poetry at a young age and as a teenager, my life experiences started making more sense through words on paper.
A few years later I completed a BA in Education and found myself teaching English at a primary school. As much as I loved my job, I knew I was called for something different. I took an intensive acting course at Casa del Teatro in Mexico City and then moved to Saskatchewan to complete a Drama degree. Although I somehow managed to survive freezing temperatures of -35 degrees Celsius, it was time for me to turn the page and start a new chapter.
I moved to London where I completed a masters in Philosophy of Education, and soon after I started immersing myself in the acting industry. A few years into it, I got married to a Brit man, became a mum and have been juggling family life and acting for the past seven years. It’s full-on and challenging at times but I can easily say I’m excited to be living my dream life.
I’d say I’m a physical performer at heart (having been an athlete in my teenage years) with a particular interest in clown. Other things I’m passionate about are philosophy, baking, respectful parenting and child development, holistic medicine, Mexican culture, buying books I never read, and planning holidays I can’t really afford. If I wasn’t an actor I’d probably be a funeral director, art gallery manager or home decorator.
Thank you for stopping by!
