In 2014, during my second reading of The Alchemist, in one of my morning routine walks along the beach when I was living in Ocean Park, I came upon two stones, side by side; Urim and Thummim. They appeared like magic once the wave receded back into the ocean.
Acting started 8 years or so ago for me. My son Guille expressed some interest in doing commercials and I took him to a couple of Talent Agencies in San Juan I was able to get referrals to. Once there, I ventured with him and filled out some forms for myself. I had done some acting in High School, but nothing formal. I’ve always said that a Masters in Architecture prepares you for much more than Architecture. Surprisingly, calls started coming and I was sent out to casting calls and gigs. I started booking extra roles in Hollywood productions on the Island. I really liked the experience.
Yesterday I received news that my birthmother died 20 years ago. She was 64 years old. Thanks to a special person in my life, I began my quest based on some documents my father gave me when I graduated College in 1985. I remember the time as if was today and Elton John’s Nikita made it all much palpable.
