Acting

Guest Starring on Notorious

This week, I'll be appearing on Thursday's season finale on ABC's Notorious. Proud to be a part of this show and the cast and crew were very kind and welcoming on set. Happy to be able to finish off the year the way I started it! #thankyoumoreplease

Swimming in the Desert

I was asked by writer/director Alvaro Ron to co-star in his short film, Swimming in the Desert, this weekend. It stars a lovely young lady by the name of Melody Marquez who plays my daughter, and legendary Cuban-American actor, Tony Plana, as my father. This film is one of four screenplays selected by NALIP Latino Lens Short Narrative Incubator finalist. 

Great Start to 2016!

I'm loving the energy surrounding this new year- so many seeds I've planted are coming to fruition. Right before the town closed out, I worked an episode of THE ODD COUPLE with Thomas Lennon and Matthew Perry and an additional scene with Geoff Stults that I can't wait to see. 

I came right back into LA with a job on CSI: Cyber waiting for me playing District Attorney Sarah Shaw, opposite Patricia Arquette and James VanDerBeek. This episode airs on February 14.

There's also some commercials popping up, both in English and Spanish markets to keep an eye out for.

Great start and I'm gonna do my best to keep the momentum flowing.

Here's to a great New Year everyone!

Fiat trapped us in a Basement

Never would I have imagined that being trapped in a locked room for an hour was a source of entertainment for people, but, boy was I enlightened!

The people at Fiat corralled gentle giant Christopher "Big Black" Boykin, my clever and adorable friend Kara Luis, hilarious Hal Rudnik, and myself into the Basement for 45 minutes, armed in only clues and an almost incoherent man-child. At first, I was uneasy but it didn't take long for us to get into the swing of things and shortly after, I was hooked. Without further ado...

 

Cristela on ABC

What a week! I just wrapped a really fun guest star role on the ABC show 'Cristela' and I am thrilled. It was such a welcoming and warm (and very Latino) cast and crew that I didn't want it to end. Without giving too much away, I play someone in Carlos Ponce's character's past which stirs up some trouble for the main couple in this episode. Look out for it on Friday, February 20th!

PSA's

I shot some Public Service Announcements for Children's Oral Health with the most adorable little boy on the planet. No joke, he was even on the Ellen Show for his cuteness! This was a fun day that twisted my tongue in all sorts of knots while making one of my favorite dishes, Empanadas!

The top is the English version and the bottom is Spanish. Fun for everyone!
