I am primarily a director and choreographer. As a Mexican-American woman of Indigenous descent, I am interested in telling stories by and for other people of color. I structure my rehearsal processes the way I wish the rest of the world was structured, prioritizing generosity and collaboration. I am deeply inspired by writings of women of color such as bell hooks, Gloria Anzaldúa, and Mariame Kaba.
I am also a proud arts administrator/worker. After nearly a year working in production and dramaturgy at the Public Theater, I currently serve as the Program Associate for the MAP Fund, working toward more equitable grantmaking practices. I was recently a featured speaker on a panel with Aye Defy and the Arts Administrators of Color Network.
I am a recent graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama and a minor in producing. I attended NYU as a Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholar.
I am an organizer with the national Sunrise Movement, where I facilitate phonebanks for progressive candidates.
I believe deeply in collectivism, and send love and gratitude to all of the people who have helped (and continue to help) me on my journey.
If you have a project you think I might be interested, please let me know!
