She formed T&A Flicks, a comedy team with actress Tammi Cubilette and comedian Angelo Lozada, directing and writing comedy shorts. For 20 years she has been an activist working on anti-police brutality cases and she led a protest against the film The Perez Family, for casting non-Latinos in Latino roles, which inspired her to create Latinos for Positive Images (LPI) organizing panels between Latinos in media and the community to raise awareness of our collective power in media. She is co-founder of Chica Luna Productions, which was a multimedia organization dedicated to training young women of color in all aspects of video production and distribution. She was on the NY chapter and the national Board for the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP).
