Some FACTS ABOUT FERNANDO
Fernando Gonzalez is Chicago-born, Indiana-raised, and New York City-residing.
Since childhood he's been verbose and impish... a fun kid to raise (don't actually ask his parents) who could always be found buried in a book, if not glued to a video game— which he always shared control of, of course (don't actually ask his sister).
Fernando is fascinated by outer space, linguistics, politics, soccer, music — and many other fields that speak to his nerdy, queer Latino heart. He stumbled into acting in high school and thought it might just be his thing. It is.
Since graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Fernando has been having a blast working non-stop on a wide range of projects. From experimental Chekhov to traditional Shakespeare, movement pieces to audio dramas, short films to web series, and musicals to commercials, he is always game to tackle something new.
Have a project in mind? Send it along! If it’s sharp and full of heart, Fernando is eager to jump in and ask, “so— where do we begin?”
