NY Glam: Tell us a little about yourself, growing up and your passions.
I was born and raised in New York City and have been thru what every young child has been thru so we don’t need to get into those details. My passion was to be a designer and artist which never came true, but I am still trying to do it.
NY Glam: What are you currently working on?
I am right now working on a new film called “Above the Double Crossing” which I am producing in March or April of 2022. It will be an interesting film; A pretty intense one! As for now, I am waiting on post-producing “The Blackout” and contacting magazines for submissions.
NY Glam: What made you take this role?
I took the main lead in “The Formerly Session” which was produced by myself. To make a long story short, I will just state few things; It was hard to get a female lead for that film due to the script was a little rated and the production company was very new. I only can pay $100 for 8 to 10 hours of work that time and the script was really rated. No actress wanted to even get back to me and a year passed and still no sign of interest, so I took the role myself because I wanted to start producing my ideas and show the public my thoughts. Now my films are cut to five to six hours a day and actors now see my work and they all agree and applied to me and trust me which I am very happy to see.
NY Glam: What journey does your character go on in the course of the monologues?
My journey is to develop whatever the other actors give me at that moment and the best way to involve and learn in the process. As for monologues, you practice, read it over and over again until you learn your lines is the best way for me to do it.
NY Glam: Tell us a little bit more about this film, what is it about, who else are you working with, and who is the director, producer, writer?
This film was written and produced by myself and was one of my two films to show people what I can do. My first film focused more on the lead herself and this film was a whole process. The director was Keith D. Bracker, who really trusted me to produce and act in this film. The cinematography was by William Murray; He was the eye of the director and the visual taker of the whole film.
NY Glam: What is the most challenging role you have played and why?
The most challenging role was I the chance to play a ghost in The Monster Mash by DARK VISION FILMS. The character in the film had no dialogue, only facial expressions using the eyes. I will never forget that role which was directed by Richard Terrasi.
NY Glam: And the most fun one?
The most fun role? I have to give it to “Blood is Power”, which I just finished six months ago by Wendell GVA James in which I play a member of the Mafia and a pretty crazy one at that! It made my blood and body boil to the extreme; you will never see this kind of a role for a while by a female actress.
NY Glam: Describe your biggest accomplishment to date?
What I accomplished so far while never stop when you think you accomplished big but you are still learning and running throw paths to achieve your goal. And lastly, I want to thank Martin Del Carpio who worked with me a lot of times and I wish for him to accomplish even more in 2022. Everyone, we will all keep going.
