TV Host, Actress, Producer, Blogger & Social Media Expert
Pili has made a name for herself as the "go to" host in the bilingual entertainment world. Her curiosity to explore the deeper side of people has earned her the opportunity to interview everyone from Sandra Bullock and Jenni Rivera to Calle 13, Ricky Martin and Gwen Steffani. She's also become known as the queen of social media locking deals with Heineken and Pepsi.
Always immersed in the world of music, this former MTV VJ and the host of LATV’s ‘En la Zona’ and ‘En Concierto’ has built a solid and respectable reputation as a music reporter both in the mass market as well as in the fast growing independent music scene.
Currently in development, Pili created and is producing and hosting the music show ‘Té Para Tres’ where she spends several days with up and coming musicians as they share their struggles and triumphs in search of making their dream come true: for the world to hear their story and spread their music. Through her interviewing skills and connection with the artist Pili will give her audience an inside, intimate look at the lives of these talented musicians.

Her fame has extended to Honduras where she is the spokesperson for SAB Miller's beer, Barena. Her popularity there has garnered her to work for E! Latino‘s show “It's Hot!” and earned her an invitation to host their "Teletón" with Mexican comedian, Adal Ramones, making her the first Puerto Rican to be asked by the country of Honduras to host such an important event.
Pili’s poise in front of the camera has also led to various hosting gigs for different brands such as Fashion’s Night Out, Chrysler, 5 Gum, AXE, Sunsilk, Burger King and Fiji Water, among others. Additionally she hosted all of Heineken's social media efforts at the 2011 Latin Grammy's.
As if all this wasn't enough, this relentless ex MTV Puerto Rico VJ, has also made a name for herself as a respected writer.
