fun fact: Essence has held a baby alligator…on her HEAD!

Raised in Miami, FL, Essence maintains light, rhythm, and flow at her core. She is half Puerto Rican and half Black with oral and written proficiency in both Spanish, and as you may have guessed it, in English.

Essence is currently living in New York City and holds a B.A. in Acting from Pace University’s International Performance Ensemble. In addition to acting, her training focused on devised theatre and ensemble collaboration. As a collaborator, you can expect focus, adaptability, play, inventive offerings, and efficiency from Essence.

She is currently focused on storytelling within the Theater, TV, and Film divisions. She has performed in Off-Broadway venues such as Theater Row and 3-Legged Dog, as well as internationally in Sitges, Spain and in Central Park at Summit Rock.
