Known as " The Curly Haired Singing Actress", eclecticism has never been a foreign concept to Genesis. This Bronx native was raised in a household that encouraged the arts, a home in which music was of great importance. Genesis describes her youth as if everyday she would “take a trip around the world without a passport,” since her family had such a diverse taste in music.
At the age of eight, Genesis began studying classical music, music theory and voice with "High bridge Voices," and she completed her studies at the age of eighteen. Genesis has performed on Good Morning America, Footloose, The Today Show, Little Shop of Horrors, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Walt Disney's Children in Harmony – just to name a few.
As her passion for the arts grew, she also started to venture modeling. She has been featured on Seventeen Magazine, Teen Vogue and participated in numerous fashion shows - both locally and state wide.
With an academically driven family, Genesis felt the need to create a “plan B” She attended Mount Saint Mary College, she declared a major in Biology. Eventually, after two years of pursuing the program, her big personality and bold fashion seemed to be too much for a lab to handle; Genesis pursued a Public Relations degree and started to work in the music industry.
After 4 years of working in the music industry, she returned to her first love- performing. Since then, Genesis made a strong return and has been in musicals such as Nine, Hair, Borderline, Little Shop of Horrors, American Idiot, Rent and Platanos Y Collard Greens- along with appearances on shows, films and commercial print.
Besides her love for the stage and camera, Genesis is determined to "Change the World Musically" and every year travels to a different country to volunteer as a music theater instructor at underprivilaged schools and orphanages. Genesis has thus far taught in Cuzco, Peru, Nairobi, Kenya, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Dominican Republic - just to name a few. Genesis is currently a certified Zumba Fitness Instructor and is in the process of developing a fitness program for women and their daughters in inner city communities.
