Streetlights is a social justice organization founded in 1992 as a Job Training, Job Placement and Career Advancement program training low-income minority men and women for jobs working behind-the-camera in the Entertainment Industry. Prior to Streetlights, I served as project director on a social marketing campaign targeting Spanish Language entertainment executives in Mexico City, promoting awareness and prevention of human trafficking through Telenovelas. She previously produced social awareness media campaigns with Mediascope, developing informational outreach programs to entertainment and creative communities on the East and West Coasts on issues such as diversity, violence prevention, drug abuse, and minority dropout prevention. I spent my early career time at the hip, innovative, super-fun Rhino Records label, and have more recently appeared in more TV Commercials (Cheetos, Carl's Jr., Hardee’s), on TV (Cheers, China Beach), and independent features (They Shoot Movies, Don’t They?). I am co-founder of the indie Nobody Productions.
And I co-host Dodger Fan Weekly with my twin sister Anadel. Go Dodgers!
