I am a Cuban-American director and writer of new plays and musicals. My artistic mission is to tell stories by and for those underrepresented in theatre, raise awareness about social justice issues, and to tell stories which evoke empathy and compassion. I am passionate about creating and developing new work because I love being in the room with the playwright and exploring the text of a new work and building the piece together--nothing is more exciting to me!
