About Me...

"If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now.

If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all."

Hamlet, Act V- Scene ii


A citizen of the world, I’m fascinated by languages, cultures and characters of every description. I was born in Mexico City and moved to London when I was 10 studying at Alleyn's School and Phillips Academy Andover in Massachusetts. Thanks to my American mother I am fluent in Spanish and English and I also hold three citizenships, UK, U.S.A. and Mexican.


Having achieved an M.A. in History from the University of Glasgow, I then trained at The London Academy of Dramatic Art (LAMDA) on a full scholarship. Since graduating I’ve worked as an actor on both sides of the pond spanning Film, TV, Radio and Voice Over work from LA, Boston to London, Spain and beyond. Encompassing cool Britannia, Boston Irish, Hispanic flair and more, my uniquely varied heritage has given me access to a plethora of characters be it comic or dramatic stage or screen. My need to fit in amongst contrasting cultures growing up, created a chameleonic quality in me which has naturally found an outlet in my work.


I’m always on the look out for exciting new roles to stretch and challenge me, whether it be as the commander of the Spanish Armada; a Byzantine Trader in Ancient Rome; a tour guide in Hollywood; an Oncologist Doctor in modern day London or an MI6 secret agent... it's all in my bag of tricks!


"Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before..."
