Hola! I’m Valeria Maria, but you can call me Vale. I am a New York City based actor, singer, and lover of life! I was born to an Argentinian mother who raised me to be bilingual (gracias mamá!), taught me my culture, sparked my imagination, and made me fall in love with music, and to a father who supports me to no end and encourages me to keep doing whatever makes me smile (thanks dad!).
I always had an overactive imagination and loved to be dramatic growing up so one day I decided to channel that energy into performing. Little did I know that this would be my calling (see?? So dramatic! But true nonetheless). The performing arts gave me a greater purpose of spreading messages that the world needs to hear through the power of theatre. It was once I discovered this greater purpose that I decided it’s exactly what I want to do for the rest of my life, so I went ahead and majored in Musical Theater. I am currently finishing up my BFA in Musical Theater at Syracuse University where I am set to graduate in May and start making my dreams a reality!
Besides theatre, my interests lie in film and television as I am a huge fan of various sitcoms and movies that I will rewatch without ever getting tired. There are movies and TV shows that have filled my heart with joy and gotten me through important moments in my life, and I would love to be a part of that for others in any way I can.
Outside of acting I’m a dork about magic, a little too into true crime documentaries, and love to knit for fun. I am very passionate about raising awareness for the importance of mental health as well as celebrating the strength and resilience of women.
Let’s work on making the world a better place together!
