Hey I'm Tessa!

I'm an Argentinean-American actor and writer based in Los Angeles. I’m an East Coaster at heart and have spent most of my life in Montclair, New Jersey and Manhattan.

I caught the acting bug when I was cast as Little Fan in A Christmas Carol at age 9, at the Luna Stage Company and have been pounding the pavement and working ever since. I graduated from Barnard College with a dual degree in Theatre (with a focus in Theatre History) and Anthropology. I moved to LA in 2016 and have completely given up my subway crawling for traffic jams and palm trees.

I love to read, I write my own cabaret and comedy material and I'm incredibly passionate about using my art to empower young women and girls. You can usually find me in a Los Feliz coffee shop or at a bar with a trashy novel and a glass of wine. I’ve just completed my MFA in acting at The University of Southern California under the tutelage of David Warshofsky, Natsuko Ohama, Andy Robison, David Bridel, Alexandra Billings and Kate Burton.
