I would love to partner with you in God’s mission. Consider enriching the ministry of your congregation inviting me as a guest preacher – I can show up as myself or as one of my characters! I can also serve you as a workshop leader to help performing arts ministries be stronger in leading worship and ministering the Word, and to help liturgical dancers and actors to experience in their bodies God’s power for healing and proclamation.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, “La Isla del Encanto”. My friends describe me as a creative preacher. I have served as teacher, lawyer, theater director and producer, actress, Christian education writer, stewardship educator, event planner, manager and workshop leader in acting, liturgical dance, and Christian Education. I moved to the continental United States in 2008 and have lived in Kentucky, New Jersey, and Tennessee. I am currently enjoying very much being a PhD student in Homiletics and Liturgics at Vanderbilt University. My research interests lie in the intersection of preaching, performing arts, and gender issues. I look forward to hearing from you!
