I’m a multidisciplinary artist passionate about literature and theater and the intersection of the arts and human rights. I have been writing fiction, poetry, plays, book reviews and articles for ten years and I’m now working on my first novel. Two of my poetry collections have been published in Spain and some of my short stories have won national awards. I have also acted in more than 20 productions and directed 5 shows, most recently an adaptation of Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba focusing on the play’s themes of gender violence. I'm currently a theater critic for the Chicago Stage Standard and ensemble member at Theater Y.
