Desirée is a multifaceted Hispanic Creative born and raised in Las Vegas, NV (yes, hard to believe, people are actually born there). She is the proud Executive Producer of the Telly Award-Winning (2020) comedic web series “FabUless“, which was also nominated for eight Indie Series Awards, including Best Comedic Series and Best Comedic Actress. Her first venture into filmmaking as a writer/director, “An Invitation to Tea” (for which Desiree was one of 5 recipients of the inaugural Inwood Art Works Filmmakers Grant), won the Audience Choice Award when it premiered at the 2020 Charlotte Film Festival. Her second film “Anne” explores the racial tensions of color blind casting and questions the true importance of story telling when a white Jewish actress and a Black actress compete for the role of Anne Frank. It is currently in production, slated to film in early 2021.
Having successfully transitioned from in front of the camera to behind, Desirée has made a living working in multiple aspects of the production world. She has produced for a variety of media such as: promotional content for Google, YouTube Red (Rhett & Link), music videos for notable artists (Magic!, Steph Sexton, Jacob Whitesides), and award winning narrative work (FabUless, Not It!, ). She is also a highly efficient UPM, having worked alongside large agencies and production companies (BBDO, Daughter, Good Company, 3rd Astronaut) to bring branded content, narrative projects, and commercials to the masses. She even worked with the Queen Bee herself on Disney’s Black is King, which awards her ultimate bragging rights.
As an actor, Desirée has a knack for comedic timing, but an equally impressive range when it comes to emotional vulnerability. She is often cast as the Girl Next Door, the Witty Friend, the Unsuspecting Heroine, and the Comedic Voice of Reason. Likable, genuine, and undeniably effervescent (friends can be so kind), she starred opposite Billy Baldwin in the Christmas flick, “Christmas Trade” on the UP Network, has a recurring role in the second season of the internet sensation “LA Macabre”, and continues her training with renowned acting coaches Larry Moss, Heidi Marshall, and UCB.
