JUNO

Trilingual actress, musician and comedienne

 

My journey

IMG_1514.JPG

I am an American stage, film and TV actress, singer, musician and comedienne born in Argentina.
I decided to be an actress at the age of 6 when I did my first play at my school. I started studying drama and performed at Centro Cultural General San Martín with the best teachers. In 2004, I dared to do something I always wanted to do…join an improv troupe! I auditioned for Liga Profesional de Improvisación and got in. In only four months I was promoted to the “professionals” level and started performing comedy sport at Teatro del Nudo y Liberarte.

Having graduated as a TV and Film producer and director in Argentina opened the doors to a whole new world for me. I started as a general producer at Flux Animation Company, where I was part of 3D animation projects and I was also the voice actor of the studio, the MOCAP actress, as wells as the reporter of one of our shows broadcasted in Rock and Pop TV called LagFiles.

In 2007, I moved to my beautiful island, Puerto Rico! Puerto Rico was my house to keep growing on my career. I created the only Japanese music band in the Caribbean and played with them for 10 years at different festivals and important events all around the island. I joined Improactores and performed with them for eight years. I created the project Improvanda in which I mixed comedy, music, and acting show in which we had a full house every Friday.
I started working as a producer for the show Mónica en Confianza for Wapa channel 4.  The Creative Director of the channel believed in my talent and took me to Univisión Puerto Rico with my character La Piba. I was interviewing famous artists but delivering it with comedy. I was then hired at GFR Media,  to co-host the web-based show “B al Grano”, I wrote the capsules and produced them as well. When this project ended, I was contacted by People Televisión to be a comedy reporter with my well-known-in-the-island character, La Piba. I was producing my capsules and writing the content. This show was broadcasted at ABC5 and then we went live at WIPR channel 6. All the channels I worked for are the country's popular channels.

During this journey as well, I served as a drama teacher at the most prestigious school in Puerto Rico, School for the Performings Arts. Here, I entered as a summer camp drama teacher and I left as a Director of Musicals for the BMP (Broadway Musical Project)

I now live in Los Angeles. I moved with a clear goal in mind, to keep on growing as a performer and as a person. So far, I auditioned for level three at Improv LA Connection and was placed at the highest level instead, I perform with this group every Saturday at Burbank. I also take improv lessons with Rob Watzke at Turbine Arts Collective. I formed the Spanish speaking Improv Troupe called Ay, Bendito!, and we have been performing at UCB Inner Sanctum, Club House and The Second City.

Finally, I am working on my EP in which I am presenting myself as a solo artist singing in Japanese and in the path to publishing my Haiku book in Japanese and my children’s book “Junior Wants a Human”
