Hey, I'm Erika!

Atlanta, Georgia

About Me

I am a Mexican/Norwegian actor and producer in LA and across the South East. I received her BFA in Acting from The Theater School at DePaul University (Chicago, IL). And pursued additional training from the London Academy of Dramatic Arts (London, England) and the Upright Citizens Brigade (New York City, NY). I am is the Founder and Producing President of Cafecito Productions and an Executive Producer for SheATL, an offshoot of the SheNYC Arts Initiative.  As an artist raised in a bicultural household in the South, I am interested in stories that authentically explore the complexities of the human experience.

|Cafecito Productions|

We are  two half latinas that were raised in the American South, and have always straddled the line between the two worlds that we were brought up in. We have found the complexity and uniqueness of our voice through storytelling, drawing inspiration from the world that raised us. Cafecito Productions is a manifestation of this journey. Every choice we make, every story we tell, and every person we bring in is a reflection of our intentions. We are a process, rather than product, oriented company, and as a result we allow ourselves to be the kind of culture that nurtures creativity and innovation. 


What We Do & How We Do It?

Goal: Authenticity.

How do we do it? Vulnerability in action... which to two cancer sun signs means telling the truth about the human experience, in all its complexities, giving equal weight to the good and the bad without judgement. 


Goal: Inclusive storytelling.

How do we do it? We invite stories to the table that weren’t invited to sit elsewhere. We change who you see and how you see them, including the people in front of and behind the camera. 


Goal: Process oriented filmmaking.

How do we do it? Inspired by what we learned in our theater backgrounds, we don’t create in a vacuum. Instead, we invite artists to step outside of their traditional lanes and prioritize collaboration across various fields.
