I’m a creative soul who has mastered several trades across many fields thanks to years of relentless endeavour, resourcefulness, and curiosity.
In the past 25 years I’ve been a professional dancer, actress, choreographer, television host, production coordinator, teaching artist, project captain, documentary researcher, tour manager, a music/theater/ film publicist, concert and theatre producer, adjunct lecturer, and a director of communications for a community college in the South Bronx.
Production creation and delivery coordination is where my heart lies, and my experience in the performing arts, production, and media and communications extends to both the profit and nonprofit sector. I’ve worked in everything from community centres to historic concert halls to parks to prisons, and I’ve worked with emerging, established and renowned figures.
I presently consult for a variety of clients in the arts and entertainment field under my own company, Marmara House Projects. My name, Soldanela, is the Spanish translation of Edelweiss, a flower used to symbolize dedication and devotion.
