Don’t try to box me in; it won’t work.
Story-maker. Activist. Filmmaker. Writer. Performer. Cuban. American. Feminist. Dreamer.
Based in Paris, France.
I’m also what someone once called an “omni-channel creative” – passionate about creating in a multitude of forms – writing, filmmaking, directing, photography, theatre, spoken word.
I am currently represented by the incredible Jessica Craig from Craig Literary. My young adult feminist fantasy novel “THE HAILENE” is currently under submission.
My first novel, Three Questions: because a Quarter Life Crisis Needs Answers can be found on Amazon.
I attended acclaimed high school Baltimore School for the Arts, then University of Southern California as a National Hispanic and Dean’s Scholar. I worked in casting for films such as Juno, the Day the Earth Stood Still and television series Numb3rs and Medium. I starred in a really bad horror movie when I was 17.

One of my life’s missions is female empowerment. I was chair and founded the New York Times’ international Women’s Network, was one of the faces of Google’s #IamRemarkable Campaign and serve as Vice-Chair for Democrats Abroad in Paris as well as on the Steering Committee for the Hispanic Caucus.
I left advertising as the New York Times’ Global Digital Business Director to make movies. See more about that life where I had my own business, lived in London and Paris doing digital advertising on LinkedIn.
