About Me

I’m Chala.  Fun Feisty Americanized Latina. Some people say I’m pretty tough but I hate going to the dentist!  Frankly, I’m a HUGE goofball at heart—you can blame that on my daddy genes:-)  

I moved from NYC to attend Chicago’s SECOND CITY’S Conservatory program.  After the freeze burn, I decided to venture to Hollywood, CA and I was ever so grateful to land the role of brassy Daniela in my dream musical “IN THE HEIGHTS” at two venues!!   This year,  BARBERSHOP 3 premiered directed by Malcom Lee.  And, SOY NERO directed by Rafi Pitts premiers in the US of A.  I was also cast as Inez in the West Coast Premiere of THE VIEW UPSTAIRS.   It was such a huge honor to be a part of this wonderful musical (cast photo below).  It was definitely the highlight of my year working with such a talented cast and telling a poignant story about the LGBT community in 1973.  Looking forward to a new beginning in 2018.   Cheers everyone!
