I am looking for opportunities in theatrical set design, themed entertainment show set design, and all related positions and experiences. I appreciate large, spectacle design in theatre, theme parks, and immersive experiences. I am willing to relocate for opportunities.
I am a proud first generation Cuban and Puerto Rican-American from South Florida. With this background I grew up immersed in the eccentric, unapologetic art and artistic expression that comes with being in a highly concentrated area of Hispanic people in my family and in the community around me.
I have been working in the theatre industry since I was 11 years old when I received my first opportunity as a props fabricator at a theatre summer camp at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I was the first student in the history of my prestigious high school, American Heritage School in Plantation, FL, to receive a full scholarship for technical theatre. There I studied the full tech theatre spectrum, focusing mostly on set design. I then went on to further training at University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA home of the "Fighting Pickles")  studying set design and graduating with a Bachelors in Fine Arts (BFA). My experience includes set design of plays, operas, and musicals as well as themed entertainment design.
When it comes to design, for me style often has little to do with the design. I try to think of every set or piece I design as independent from the others because it is informed by an entirely new theatre piece or prompt, collaboration with a different team, and inspiration that caters to the needs of that production and what it needs to best tell the story.
I love following new paths and new ways of doing theatre, themed experience design, and art that I’ve never done before in a quest for the best outcome to tell the story.
