BIOGRAPHY

A BILINGUAL ACTRESS

Susi was born in Puerto Rico where she began acting as a child in school and in church. After graduating from Boston University School of Theatre and before returning to her native island, she performed for the Boston audiences in the English and Spanish versions of "Worn Out Angels".

While back in Puerto Rico she made several appearances in national TV series as well as TV commercials, such as Colgate (principal) which was diffused across Latin America. She performed with Teatro del 60' for six years in over two hundred shows around the island educating the audience about AIDS.

With the desire to mature her spirituality, Susi embraced a spiritual journey to France where she strengthened her inner self and began a new path.

Susi came to Florida and made her debut at Mad Cow Theatre of Orlando in "Bodas de sangre". Shortly after, she booked other productions including "La casa de Bernarda Alba", "Once" The Musical, "A View From The Bridge", "Prohibido suicidarse en primavera", and "The Penelopiad", among others.

In addition to her stage characters, she has held supporting roles in various independent short films. Among them, "Behind The Scenes" was nominated in 2019 in the International Christian Film Festival and in the OIF Heart Challenge Festival.

THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE

Some of these characters are old, wise and real. Others are pure imagination. In any of the cases, when an actor/actress go on stage he/she merges into a single person with its character provoking a passion that never fades in the audience's heart. Enjoy!
