My ultimate passion is to communicate, connect & contribute. For over 15 years I've been fortunate to do this through visual storytelling primarily for the US Hispanic entertainment industry.

As a Latina raised in Miami, FL (Go Heat!!) I always enjoyed my community’s diversity and the jobs I was able to navigate. I recently moved back to Miami from Houston where I got to meet the incredibly diverse community there. (Must watch Parts Unknown: Houston!)

I started my career as the Host of Yahoo! HOY A daily news segment, where I was able to interview 100+ celebrities, cover the 2016 US Presidential Election, and global events such as Copa America. I have hosted shows for Telemundo Deportes, HolaTV & HITN.

I’m an actor and filmmaker with a BAS in Film, TV & Digital Production Technology, AS in Journalism and SAG eligible. I starred in the Disney Latino’s / Cris Morena joint TV series “Jake & Blake”, and directed a short film “Yo y Sho”, a semi-biopic about the struggles of an Argentinian actress’ accent in Miami.

As an entrepreneur, I was able to use my journalism & marketing skills to advocate for nutrition and sustainability through my family company “Progan”, a US based company dedicated to sourcing quality recycled ingredients for sustainable industries such as Pet food manufacturing, Renewable diesel & Cosmetics.

Like most Argentinians I am a crazy Fútbol fan, who’s been lucky to cover the 2016 World Cup in Russia with Telemundo Deportes!!, I love personal development and truly believe in the social impact of great storytelling.
