As a founding member of ASTEP, Mauricio recruited and trained volunteers to serve in ASTEP’s domestic programs and managed and evaluated partnerships while researching and developing new programs. Originally from Miami, Florida, Mauricio graduated with a BFA from The Juilliard School. Recent appearances include Michael Kahn’s production of Love’s Labours Lost with the Shakespeare Theatre Company, The Cenci at Ohio Theatre, the title role in the Kaai Theatre [Brussels] production of Philoctetes, and the premiere of Marco Ramirez’ Mermaids, Monsters and the World Painted Purple at the Kennedy Center.
