Oscar, born in New York and raised in New Jersey, came to California to pursue his dream of acting; like most Communication majors. He studied at the Australian Institute of Dramatic Arts and instead of becoming the Dominican/Colombian Cate Blanchett, he chose to pursue a higher level of gravitas: sketch comedy.

It started with performing stand-up at the Hollywood Improv and led to graduating the Second City Hollywood conservatory. He was soon performing improv and sketch comedy throughout Los Angeles. He's a 2019 Second City Hollywood Bob Curry Fellow. He trained, and finished, the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon. And then...Covid.

 

"This was supposed to be the year", he said.  And though Oscar felt validated by the sound of God's laughter, it still wasn't enough. His desire to continue creating and performing led to his Youtube channel of original sketches dealing with the pandemic (and more). He's a recipient of the 2020 Emerging Content Creator scholarship from the National Association of Latino Independent Producers and performed in the 2021 Latino Filmmakers Network's New Normal Reading Series. 

 

In addition, Oscar is a founding member of Diversity Higher Comedy, a sketch comedy team comprised of BIPOC comedic actors and sketch writers. Their web series "Saved by the Improv" debuted in 2020 and in 2021 they launched their very own virtual short film festival comprised of original comedic shorts. 

Oscar is currently represented by MGMT Artists. In addition to writing and performing, he debates with his wife which show to binge watch next and maintains a healthy addiction to all things Batman.
