Her television appearances include: LOGO's "One Night Stand Up," the "Today" show, Mo Gaffney's "Women Aloud," "Ellen," "Que Loco," "Funny is Funny," and "Latino Laugh Festival." She's performed what she calls "random acts of publishing" alongside her comedy career and has contributed to national magazines, online content and been featured in four literary and comedic anthologies.
