About me

Born in Mexico, raised in Italy, over the past 6 years I worked as an independent creative producer for theatre companies and artists in Italy, India and Singapore, where I currently live.

I am passionate about connecting culture through performing arts, looking particularly at contemporary practices from Southeast Asia and Italy.
