I started being interested in acting, singing, dancing and visual arts at a young age. I remember performing a rap in front of the whole school district in 3rd grade. It was about air pollution! Through the years, I studied arts and the Central High School of Visual Arts in Puerto Rico, while playing my guitar and singing in the hallways. Once in college, I studied acting and music, and learned of my love for musical theatre. I also performed with bands and as a solo act in bars and clubs across the island. After college, I decided to join the corporate world, but that didn’t turn out the way I wanted, so I went back to my roots. I started performing in plays and musicals, until I was giving the opportunity to audition for commercials and do commercial modeling. After many commercials, both local and national, videos and hosting, my love for makeup flourished and so I started my journey to become a makeup artist. I have to stay, it wasn’t easy. I knew I had the skills, but there’s always room to learn. And so after many hours of learning and practice, I started freelancing.

To give you some scoop into my world, I’m married to the most supportive husband in the world. We have an amazing daughter, a puppy, 3 guinea pigs and 2 turtles. Our days are fast and crazy, we have had lows and we have had highs, but we’re a great team together.

XOXO
