Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
I’m an acting coach and writer. I was born in Buenos Aires to an Italian family. I began my career as a stage actress at 14 years old and transitioned into teaching after 20 or so years of touring the stage worldwide. I acted in big and small theaters, on the streets, and in experimental places like private residences. My fascination with the human experience brought me to live in different places and ger immerse myself in various cultures and belief systems. I like to explore, to learn, I’m a traveler and perhaps a little bit of a gypsy. When I decided to leave Argentina I thought that I couldn’t keep telling stories on stage without knowing the world I was being born into, so I took a ticket to go to the farthest place I related to India. My traveling journey began in connection with spiritual practices and service to other people. While traveling I studied and learn acting techniques from the most amazing teachers some of them known (Charlie Laughton, Geraldine Baron, Susan Peretz, Lito Cruz, Augusto Fernandez, Norman Brisky…) and others were storytellers and artists on the streets, on basements, improvised workshops in alleys, houses… Other teachers came in books, in fellow humans, in nature… I traveled in Europe while residing in Rome and When I came to Los Angeles I decided to explore a little bit of Mexico and Canada as well. Still, there’s so much of the planet I want to see and learn from, it never ends. Wonder lives everywhere from a backyard to the Eiffel tower and everything in between. I also like to travel inside myself where most mysteries live.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I want my clients to succeed. I don’t like to keep them thirsty for more and co-dependant so that they keep giving me money or attention or whatever people get from clients. I want to inspire them to fly and find their own truth. I meditate prior to my sessions and connect to a Superior Source o wisdom that is common ground for everyone in the session so that we can all learn, progress, and grow as a group of artists at each meeting. I believe in the passing of knowledge, whether that is a life experience or an acting technique. As a writer, I have so many stories to tell because I’m always listening and observing life and so, everything has a story to tell, even a rock or a warm or something that you would take for granted.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I was five years old. My mother was washing the patio of our little house in Buenos Aires with a hose and a broom. I remember the scent of the water touching the bricks and the plants. She was wearing an apron and flip-flops and I was in underwear. It was hot and the water under my feet felt refreshing. I stood in front of my mother and announce in a big, convincing voice “I’m an actress”. That was all. Since that moment my observation of life changed. I began taking notes in pictures first and a year after that I was writing stories and creating characters.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
Being an immigrant and a single mother. I learned to walk through fear in a much more efficient.
