I am a Brooklyn based artist from Yauco, Puerto Rico.

Through the medium of performance art I seek to transform my body into an empathetic zone; I want to become a catalyst for your self-reflection. I create performative works that are confrontational, funny, aggressive, and high energy.

I also use the medium of video to create abstract digital landscapes. These short non-narrative works explore the fetishistic interplay between technology and modern life.
