Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My journey began in 2008 in a Latin music singing competition “Renace Una Estrella” where I placed 7th out of 200 contestants. This led me to release my first Spanish album in 2014 “Edificando el Espíritu” produced by my good friend and colleague Angel Serrano (Xerran Music). Within that same year, I transitioned into acting and modeling with the talent Agency “Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ” (AMTC).
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
The very first time I heard auditions were being held for AMTC (Talent Agency), the same day I left a note on my bosses’ desk saying, “There is an opportunity that I cannot turn down, I cannot come into work tomorrow”. During the audition process, my boss called me and basically said I would be fired if I did not return his call. I called him after I received the good news.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
The main tip I would recommend out of many tips would be to question yourself and be clear as to why you are doing what you are doing in this industry. Find your purpose and thrive in it. If you don’t know what your purpose is then you have homework to do.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I am grateful for a lot of people that helped me achieve both careers that I have today. Mainly I am grateful for my day job; Goodyear Bay Area Tire & Service.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
By making good bolder in film, fashion, and music.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
My favorite life lesson quote is “Be humble, be hungry and always be the hardest working person in the room”. This has led me to work with many celebrities like Michael B. Jordan, Ryan Coogler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Shainlene Woodley and many more.
