I am a storyteller, creator,  & collaborator based out of new york city.  Through my storytelling, I  seek to authentically add joy to people's lives and  allow people to feel fully seen and  represented.  .   Playing is the name of my game in the rehearsal room/on stage / on set so that we can find & create the most authentic version of the story at hand.   I  love to tell stories through acting, dance, movement, & song.   
my passion and drive for storytelling, dancing, acting, & singing    started at the early age of three &    has never waned since.  I've been fortunate to work in theatres  across the chicagoland & new york regions creating new works from the ground up & bringing fresh perspectives to    classic stories. 
I graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre with a minor in Psychology from The Chicago College of the Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in Chicago. today, i am    continually    training in Nyc at the jen waldman studio, eddie schnecker studio, the pit, maxtheatrics, & the heidi marshall studio.
"As Tzeitel, Andres is likable as she has been in the past, a good actress who has a natural ability to emote to the back seats of a theater, even when she’s not the focus of a scene."
