I am a performing arts manager and development strategist with a broad range of interests in the arts and culture. In 1999 I joined the staff of Pregones Theater, assuming a leadership role in fundraising for artistic programs and capital projects, including launch of a new performing arts facility in the South Bronx. My prior professional background includes 10 years in letterpress/graphic design and multiple arts documentation projects. My alma maters are Bucknell University and NYU. I am a frequent collaborator with the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture and a Board member with the Bronx Council on the Arts.
