BACKGROUND

I'm a Dominican singer/songwriter currently located in Los Angeles, California. I speak English, Spanish and can understand conversational Italian. 

Music has always been my haven. I've pursed it with passion throughout my entire life. I started writing lyrics in middle school and released my first demo at the age of 15. Shortly after I was approached by BMI and offered a record deal by a subsidiary label. As tempting as the offer was - I declined it. I was too young and didn't want to get stuck in one specific genre of music.

For a good while I performed in venues in Miami, Orlando and Los Angeles. But eventually I had to pause all creative pursuits due to severe exhaustion and mental fog. Years later I discovered that my kidneys were failing. The cause of my kidney failure was never found.

On August 12, 2015 I received a kidney transplant via UCLA's kidney exchange program. My husband donated one of his kidneys to a stranger and I received one in return. I was finally able to work on music again once I recovered from surgery. This is when my adventure with Ubisoft and Hitrecord began.
 

I'm incredibly grateful for my second chance at life. I don't intend to waste it. Sending tons of love to everyone who support throughout the years. I appreciate you all so much more than you know.

xoxo,

ABOUT

Welcome to my site! If you're here you likely already know a bit about me. But just in case:

CREATIVE WORK
I'm a bilingual singer/songwriter, voice actor and gaming content creator. I've worked as a producer, arranger, singer, lyricist, musician and composer for several tracks throughout the years in a variety of genres.

 

You'll hear some of my work in two AAA video games by Ubisoft: Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Watch Dogs Legion. I was a backup vocalist for the rapper Logic in the YouTube Special, Band Together - an Emmy Finalist in Innovation. I've also collaborated on tracks for companies like Zappos and Hitrecord. I most recently worked on the sound design for Jessica Alba's ASMR You Scared of the Dark series. View additional credits here.

I'm still quite new to the voice acting world but have been lucky enough to voice Arakna in the upcoming mobile game, Monsters vs Fractions - Episode 2. My main focus so far as voice talent has been in the commercial field. If you're interested in booking me head on over to Bunny Studio.

Prior to my exposure to Hitrecord I was able to establish a relationship with the gaming company - Ubisoft, They initially contacted me because of my YouTube coverage of their video game, Beyond Good and Evil 2. I helped launch their collaboration with Hitrecord at E32018. I'm unable to talk about anything else due to NDA but I can at least say that I'm also part of Ubi's Star Player program.

 

NON-CREATIVE WORK

I've been working as a Technical Advisor for the past ten years for a production rental company in Burbank, CA. We focus on the needs for short term productions like commercials, promos and music videos. I helped develop the business alongside my husband and his business partner. 

Before that I worked in production as an office and set PA - mostly for Disney, ABC and Lifetime. I also have experience in Human Resources and other clerical work.
