As a child, Vianessa wanted nothing more than to be a singer, actress and baby chicken when she grew up. Only one of those things came true however, but she still holds on to the hope of developing the power of transmutation. In her screenwriting and directorial debut, Vianessa created ‘Gringa Latina’ as a response to the homogeneity of roles available to her. Her acting experience includes such coveted roles as the narrator of her first grade production of ‘The Nativity’, ‘The Mindy Project’ on Hulu, ‘Lopez’ and ‘Instant Mom’ on TV Land, ‘The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story’ on Fox, ‘The Mentalist’ on ABC, and ‘East Los High’ on Hulu among others. She also has a strong live performance background having toured the US while in the theatrical production ‘Love Overboard’ in 2009 which was later turned into a film of the same name. Vianessa was born outside of Boston, but raised between the Dominican Republic and a slew of US cities up and down the east coast.
