I’m a Latinx-American actress with a Jewish background. I also speak three languages. What a mix, right? I was born in Arizona, but my family is Jewish-Brazilian. I was raised in Brazil and currently live in Los Angeles.
My recent credits include playing Maureen on the acclaimed mini-series Pam & Tommy on Hulu that premiered in February 2022 and Gino's Wife on the highly awaited drama series about the making of The Godfather movies: The Offer on Paramount+ which premiered in April 2022. You can also catch me playing Kerry on Season 5 episode 15 of Fox's prime-time drama 9-1-1 and playing Gianna on AppleTV's new single-cam dramedy Life By Ella. Also, you'll see me in supporting roles on the feature film First Oscar opposite actor Michael Lerner and on the short film Consultation Room 125. Commercially, I was on a promo for The Masked Singer on Fox in 2021. I also had the pleasure to be on ads for brands like Toyota, Chevron, Apple, Alaska Airlines, Google.
After training in dance for over 10 years in Brazil, transitioning into theater and film was the best decision I ever made! While working on my theater degree, I performed as Mary Warren in The Crucible – part for which I was fortunate to receive the Theater Outback's award for Best Supporting Actress. This was such a great fit for me because I'm drawn to stories of good and honorable women who are struggling with high-stakes ethical and/or moral dilemmas, especially when inside a power dynamic.
