My passion for entertainment began at a real young age. I was born and raised in Washington Heights in New York City; to parents of Puerto Rican and Dominican decent. Growing up I listened to a combination of English and Spanish music. My father was a huge influence on me he listened to Rhythm and Blues like the Four Tops and many other R&B artists. And, of course my mom would play Salsa and Merengue on holidays and at birthday parties.
As a kid I would put on dance numbers at home for the family. I was always eager to participate in the schools talent shows. At the age of eleven along with some friends from the neighborhood we created an R&B girl group called the uptown girls. With our friends and family as an audience we went around singing to the songs of Mary J. Blige and SWV. Later I moved to Miami Beach and with all the exposure of the music and film industry I became convinced and decided to follow my dreams. I began to attend casting calls and auditioning on a regular basis. In spring of 2003 I was selected to join a Latin all girl group called ‘Una Sangre’ (One Blood). Later that summer I recorded a song called ‘Drop It’ with Kurtis Blow and another female artist. Neither project were a success but I developed skills and experience which have helped me gain understanding of the business.
I continue to attend casting calls and was chosen as an extra for the film "Prime" a Ben Younger film and a video for group Aventura called "Un Beso" (A Kiss). I have participated in many magazine contest with reputable companies such as Maxim, Smooth, Stuff and others. Been featured in Show, Smooth, Jet, The Source, Urban Ink, Hip Hop Weekly, Dimepiece and many more. Been freatured in a few music video's like Mario feat.Juvenile "Boom". I appeared as one of the principles girls. The video was directed by Benny Boom.
