Artist, Actor, and Public Speaker in New York
I’m Paulie Rojas, an actress, entrepreneur, classical enthusiast, and lover of life, adventure, dogs, and a good Russian novel. I spent my childhood in Mexico City learning the ways of the world and acquiring my first found loves of art, ranging from Diego Rivera to Kate Hepburn.
My appreciation of acting stems from my grandfather, who was the legendary leading man, Roberto Cañedo, one of the most prolific actors in the history of Mexican Cinema. As a young girl, I knew it would be my life’s work to do what granddad did: tell stories that matter, while expressing myself to the world.
I’m happy to say I’ve worked on network TV, most recently an NBC Pilot, and starred in award winning films for which I’ve been recognized. Dearest to my heart, I had the honor of playing Audrey Hepburn in the completely fictional, but historically possible story, "Before Breakfast." This short film has been accumulating awards and praise, but none as meaningful and profoundly special as getting a charmed nod from the Audrey Hepburn Foundation, (be still my heart).
I'm a BFA graduate in theatre from the prestigious University of Southern California, and classically trained in NYC at The Tom Todoroff Conservatory. Currently I am the CEO of The Public Speaking Pro - where I share my skills of storytelling to empower entrepreneurs to bring their mission to life.
Notable passions of mine range from languages, (I’m fluent in English, Spanish and French), dancing as a classically trained ballerina, being a trained black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and having studied classical piano since the age of four. Behind closed doors, I spend my time looking up trivia, reading classic literature, searching tickets on Google Flights, and visualizing myself on the big screen, portraying the heroines of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, and Shaw.
Once I moved to NYC I cemented my dream of being a storyteller and artist as an act of service. Life is about the story, and thus, I share my story with you.
