The moment right after I signed the poster at the premiere of MALDEAMORES (Lovesickness) produced by Benicio Del Toro and directed by @carlitosruiz and @maramarafilms (Gracias, gente). My first movie... I was living in PR when I first audition for it. Them moved to the US. Two years later moved back to 🇵🇷. They called me to audition again for a different role. I ended up performing up close and personal with this cool cat @loueyfromthehood and badass Teresa Hernández in that “different role”. Dearies, it might happen with a “different role”, on your first try, third or you’re probably still trying, it doesn’t matter as long as you keep doing your thing. ***Esto fue justo después de que autografié el afiche de la primera película en la que participé. Fue la noche del estreno en Puerto Rico. Ahí estaba viviendo cuando audioné. Después me mudé a Estados Unidos y dos años después regresé a Puertorro. Me llamaron de nuevo para audicionar y esta vez para otro personaje. Terminé actuando mano a mano con la chulería en pote Luis Guzmán y la tremendaza actriz Teresa Hernández en ese “otro personaje”. Mi gente, puede que suceda con ese “otro personaje “, o en la primera vez que traten, o en la tercera, o puede ser que todavía siguen tratando, eso no importa mientras sigan haciendo lo suyo.
Happy 75th Birthday, Bob! You’ve left us all with a profound cinematic legacy of memorable characters throughout the years,... and your contributions within the entertainment biz (as well as out), leaves us all smiling, and many hearts touched. Thank You, and may you continue creating exceptional work, and enjoy this milestone of a birthday!

Yesterday was 5 years that I've been in the US. So @agusjacobi made a chocolate cake with Dulce de Leche to celebrate (So good!).😉👸🏻
It's been a constant hustle, with school, getting work, Visas, and trying to break into the industry. Here's to more of that... Cheers.

IT'S GOING TO HURT, MORE SO THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. Your life will end at some point and years before that happens your mind will hold you hostage to the feelings of regret and pain.
Whether it's spending more time with a loved one, moving across the country or becoming the best athlete, you will create a rock of painful regret in the middle of your heart, which will make even your saliva hard to swallow every night. Yes that's how much it will hurt.
The good news is that you can do something about it right now. Starting tomorrow you can make 19 micro-decisions which will lead to better habits, which leads to better actions. The hard part is being consistent with those good habits.
Really ask yourself, whose opinion do you value so much, that it actually has become a detriment for your growth?
Who are you afraid to fail in front of? Is it your husband? Your mom? Your sister? Your former college friends with better jobs and a baby?
Until you break the chains of opinion you will always be afraid. Begin the process of dismantling yourself from the opinions of others; it is the only way to succeed. .
Thank you for the shoutout @blackmagicnewsofficial .
The URSA Mini Pro’s ability to instantly play back clips helped quicken the pace and allowed Director Angelo Reyes @angeloreyes_com to film extra takes while shooting the indie short film Groomed. Using two URSA Mini Pros, Reyes was able to shoot in tight spaces due to the cameras’ handheld design and fold out touch screens.
This post was going to be about us having fun on a rooftop in NYC, photos being taken by @luiscarlenyc .BUT then, who’s far away yet close by enjoying my happiness? One of the four important men in my life. One of the four guy friends. A friend who listens to me, makes me laugh, gets angry on my behalf, sends me photos of inappropriate things by text, who trusts me to share with me his darkest thoughts and to revise his written works. A friend who SEES me and is always oh so happy and proud of me. That guy (hiding in the water over there) is actor, playwright, screenwriter, director, professor Luis Caballero. So, of course it couldn’t be only about a photo in a pool, hell no. Dearies, don’t take your people for granted, and keep doing your thing. ***Compartir esta foto era pa’ celebrar lo bien que lo pasamos en una azotea, PERO, ¿quién está lejitos y a la vez cerca disfrutándose que estoy feliz? Uno de los cuatro amigos. De los hombres importantes en mi vida. Que me escucha, me hace reír, se enoja en mi nombre, me envía textos inapropiados, que confía en mí tanto que comparte sus pensamientos siniestros y deja que revise sus trabajos escritos. Un amigo que me VE y siempre está tan feliz y orgulloso de mí. Ése (allí escondido en el agua) es el actor, dramaturgo, escritor de cine, director, profesor: @caballero4600 Ámote, purruco. Así que obvio que no podía ser sólo una foto en una piscina. Claro que no. Mi gente, no den por sentado a su gente y, sigan haciendo lo suyo.
Show off that Union membership!
I love actors who commit to their craft and I'm proud to be a member of #thebestinthebiz
I stand for fair contracts, diversity and inclusivity and safe labor laws.
It's sad that so many nonunion actors get taken advantage of. Join together and protect our rights and livelihood. #GoUnion#sagaftra#sagaftraactor#LAactor#sagaftramember
Traveling Tuesday Stories:
Once I was hitchhiking from Serbia to Bosnia Herzegovina. I got picked up by a professional basketball player from Sarajevo. He was huge. On our way he got sleepy and asked me if I drove, to which I immediately said yes in order to add stories to me trip. So here I am, driving a strangers car, in a foreign country, taking photos, while the 6.8ft owner sleeps next to me. 👍😉
