Alfredo was born in New Jersey, but at the age of two, his mother moved with him to Puerto Rico. There is where his Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn sides came to life, as he roamed the woods, took his friends on adventures, and envisioned fantastical tales that let his imagination flourish. He fell in love with Storytelling and his passion for the Arts was ignited.

At the age of 11, his family moved back to the United States. Alfredo was now writing short stories and drawing, which he continued to do through high school. Along the way, he added a few more art forms to his repertoire: he was a graffiti artist, a tattoo artist, and even started making posters for local musicians. It was around this time he fell into the underground society of NYC and went through a dark period in his life…until he met his present mentor one day while driving a limo and she encouraged him to keep writing. Writing turned into screenwriting, screenwriting turned into filmmaking and filmmaking turned into acting.

Acting has taken over in a way he probably never would have expected. He’s studied acting with currently some of the best teachers, like Larry Moss, John Dapolito from AWG and Allen Savage. He’s been working since either as a hired actor or creating his own work and collaborating with other artists.

Alfredo resides on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He still travels three or four times a year back to Puerto Rico where his grandmother, mother, horse Aquarius, and two Vietnamese pot belly pigs (Ricky and Lucy) live.

I'm passionate about working on roles of the unlikely heroes, or anti-heroes. Also, stories about broken spirits rising with courage in the absence of light. I enjoy exploring the true nature of the sub-culture and the characters that navigate through it, in order to bring us the lessons of the underground or the unknown. I love working on both stage and film to bring you these stories of The Heroes Journey into the Night.
