Actor | Model | Creator
Oi, hola, and hello!
I was born and raised in Miami, FL to Brazilian parents. As a child, I was raised on "the classics." On Friday trips to Blockbuster, my mother would pick out a classic, such as Ben-Hur, The Sound of Music, or Indiana Jones, and luckily for me I also got to pick one movie from my favorite genres: horror and sci-fi, naturally. So, I grew up loving films like The Exorcist, Contact, and my favorite, the Alien Anthology.
Besides being an avid movie lover, I also have a passion for cooking, photography, and languages, relishing any opportunity to use any of those skills in my acting. Since the pandemic began, I have also begun exploring other avenues of creativity, including writing and producing, though I'm sure directing isn't too far off.
I believe our industry (and, really, the world at large) could use a little more kindness and compassion. When I was in grad school, this idea was cemented in me. I also relished every opportunity to take part in true collaboration with kindred spirits, which meant not only coming together with other artists but also being open, vulnerable, and having a willingness to trust each other to discover what we could create together. I continue to foster this way of working as my career unfolds.
