My Spanish is from South America. A combination
Chilean/Venezuelan. It doesn't have a distinctive accent. Here is a sample of my
Spanish 'sound' (click on the image to play the video). This is a commercial I
did for the Medical Board of California, it has subtitles. TRT:30 secs. 1.3MB.
I was Blossom in the live show for Mervyn's presentation of their new line of
clothing. Lots of dancing and jumping and kicking/fighting moves in costume too!
At Universal Studios Hollywood, I played
five Characters. I could be Cera from The Land Before Time, SpongeBob
SquarePants, Spyro the Dragon, Tommy Pickles from the Rugrats or Donnie from the

learned a long time ago that I was the 'Product'. I've never been very good with
second hand information, so instead of hiring a Personal Trainer to teach me
about fitness and nutrition, I became a Trainer myself. I took the courses and
the exams and became Nationally Certified with the National Academy of Sports
Medicine. Being a Fitness Trainer was definitely the most rewarding job I've
Another skill that spawned from working in the Theatre and having to do our own
makeup and tricks. I did about 14 Zombies for the movie
"Bite My Ass".

I've done my own hair and makeup for the various films, like: "Amores
Muertos", "Divination", "The Cursed Man"

bedroom and a hallway.
I love color!
Submission Style Wrestling

fear to the hearts of my opponents, was 'Scooby'. I am wearing the green

I busted Tela's knee with this move.
A neck hold.
I had 'speed and potential', according to my coach Helen from the
Female Wrestling Team Virago. I was a member when I lived in San
White Water Rafting
III rapids. Pictured here with the Girl Scouts of San Fernando Valley.
I went with Bungee
America, the only state-licensed bungee jumping in California.
A moderate to difficult 5 mile hike
with over half dozen stream crossings to the 'Bridge to Nowhere'.
The bridge was built over the east fork of the San
Gabriel River in 1936. The road that lead to it was swept away by floods
It's done by body weight, so I was the first to jump! I had to set the
example, because subsequent jumps depend on the first jumper.
Needless to say, my jump looked GREAT! I did a
Front Swan Dive with body harness. It was very fast, my buddy J.J. who was
taking pictures, wasn't able to capture the take off, so I have to go back and
do it again, but next time it will be with the ankle harness!
I like in-line skating but I discovered
Agressive Skating. I am currently working on the 1/2 pipe and the Grinding.
High speed go-kart
racing is so much fun! This was at Malibu Grand Prix where they have these cute
karts that look like racing cars. I am driving a 'Virage'.
Whether it's PC, Playstation, XBox, Gamecube, Wii... got 'em all! Some of my
favorites have been: The Zelda series (of course), Kirby, all the Mario Games,
the Spyro series, the Ratchet & Clank series, Medievil, Ty series, Crash
Bandicoot series, The Sly series, Pikmin, in summary: I love all the adventure
Graphic and Web Designer
Once a Graphic Designer, always a Graphic Designer! Currently I find myself
designing promotional materials for productions (plays, movies, etc). If it can
be printed, I've done it: postcards, business cards, posters, t-shirts, hats,
newspaper/magazine ads, door/window/store signs, pens, bags, you name it! Some
of my most recent designs:
I helped my friend Braun Keith with the promotional materials for various of
his theatre productions.
I've also helped Maylen Calienes, a good friend I made at Universal
Studios Hollywood, with the promotional materials for both her movies "The Dance
of Death" and "Domino".
I am the web mistress of nine web sites, including my own, which is always a
work in progress! I really enjoy doing animations. My favorite is the opening
page for Guardsman Insurance.
I still remember when I was in Kindergarten and getting a pile of jigsaws to put
together, not one but 5 at a time. Nowadays I've graduated to bigger puzzles
with smaller pieces and when I am done, I frame them. Here is one of my
favorites, a 55" tall by 77" wide and 9,000 pieces, 'The Tower of Babel', the
artwork by Pieter Bruegerl the Edler. The image is a view of the Tower of Babel
as depicted in the Bible from a 1563 painting. It adorns my foyer.
I tried Escrima, the Philipino Martial Arts of stick fighting. You mainly hit
the sticks not the person, and if you do combat, you wear plenty of padding. I
am currently looking for a Guru as I lost mine when I moved.
Swimming (Free Style)
Running and Jogging
I've always been into sports, in High School I was in the track and field team.
I was a speed runner. I have a gold medal for winning the 100m dash. These days
I mostly jog.
I owned my own horses when I lived in Venezuela.
With my friend "Mandrake" from the L.A. Equestrian Club. Getting ready to
I have seven static jumps to my name. Free Falling will be next!
Movies, Trivia, Chess, Su Doku
I've been involved with many aspects of the Theatre, including Directing, Stage
Design and Writing. I wrote all the comedy skits that I performed with my Comedy
Improv Team 'The Miss-Fits'. Some of my work has also been performed at the
local high schools. I am registered with the Library of Congress and I just
became part of the writing team for the show I am in,
Oil Painting, Sculpting, Charcoal, Pastels
Some samples of my creations...
I am very proud of my little 'Oscar' statue, it's 4 feet tall, made of
Foam, and 200 hours of carving and sanding!
One of my favorite creations is the Trailer Park Sign I made for the show I am
