ABOUT FELIPE

Born and raised in Connecticut to Pentecostal (fundamentalist Christian) parents, I didn't find theater until high school.  Most of my early performance experience was singing Christian hymns. My first show was in the high school drama club - Sweet Charity - playing the indomitable Young Spanish Man.  I was hooked. I found my home and my tribe. During high school, I attended the Carnegie Mellon Summer pre-college program for musical theater and deepened that love. I was accepted to NYU/Tisch in the Lee Strasberg Institute.  After some time there, I studied musical theater at CAP/21. During my summers, I performed at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, OH singing and dancing 5-6 shows per day. Following graduation, I spent a summer at Surflight Theater down the Jersey shore and made some life-long friends.  Favorite credits include - Paul in A Chorus Line, Bernardo in West Side Story, and Lyle in Footloose. I left the arts for 10 years and got a "real job" which paid handsomely only to still find a tug back to the arts. I moved to Los Angeles and have been navigating this ever-changing business since then.  Credits include, "Transparent", "Major Crimes", "Lopez", and "Criminal Minds". This year, I became a teacher (specializing in Meisner repetition) at BGB Studio in North Hollywood co-teaching alongside casting director Risa Bramon Garcia. What a ride it's been and here's to more excitement easing on down the road.
