Hello! I am Mafer, a passionate performer and film director.

Originally from Aguascalientes, Mexico, Mafer graduated with a BS in Communications from Universidad Autonoma de San Luis Potosi in 2010. While still a student, she worked as a news anchor in the television program Hoy Informativo at Canal 13, and as a co-host for the science radio program A Bordo de la Ciencia at Radio Universidad. During this time, Mafer started performing in several independent plays and short films. When she moved to Cincinnati in 2011, she worked as an actress and model for commercials.

Her professional training as a performer started in 2014 when she entered the Acting program of the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati. At CCM, she has had voice and speech training under the expertise coaching of Rocco Dal Vera and D’Arcy Smith; theatrical techniques like Meisner, Michael Chekhov, Stanislavsky, Suzuki, ViewPoints, and Alba with Richard Hess, Giles Davies, and Susan Felder; as well as unarmed and rapier and dagger stage combat with master K. Jenny Jones.

Just for fun, Mafer enjoys singing Opera, Boleros, and Mariachi, listening to audiobooks, and cooking authentic Mexican food.
