    Additional Information

    ​I also love singing and sing in two bands, The Shakespeare Heptet (theshakespeareheptet.com) - we set Shakespeare's sonnets to music in a range of styles such as rock, tango, bossanova, folk, punk and whatever genre suits the content of the sonnet. I also sing in a jazz duo and trio: Jazztastique (jazztastique.com) and Bossalove (bossalove.com) - a more mellow vibe playing bossanova, jazz standards, latin jazz and some lovely French chanson. We gig regularly in Brighton and surrounding areas.

    About me

    Born in Brazil, to wonderful Colombian parents, I spent the first ten years of my life living in Bogota and came to England at the age of 10 where I have lived since. I think it's fair to say that I am a mixture of languages and cultures and I easily tune in into both, and this has made for a pretty colourful personal and acting life.

    In 2015 I co-founded Pimpinella Productions, a Brighton-based theatre company. We've had two shows in the Brighton Fringe, 'El Hound de los Baskervilles', a comedy adaptation of Conan Doyles' classic in which I play Olga-Lucia a newly arrived Colombian woman with the arduous task of staging this well known Sherlock Holmes tale to save the reputation of the Colombian theatre company she has performed with for 15 years, playing the crucial role of the tail of the hound! In Pimpinella's second production 'Radio Foreplay', I played Jane Gargley - a larger than life, outspoken and very posh English radio presenter.

    I also work regularly as a voiceover artist in both English and Spanish.
