Vanessa’s Bio Check out her website here. 

Vanessa Verduga is a multi-talented actress, singer and writer who is laser focused on creating bold and explosive career opportunities – but those inclined to start using the shopworn phrase “Renaissance Woman” to describe her will be quickly corrected for being too limiting. These days, the Los Angeles born, Bronx raised performer—who legitimately includes “producer” and “lawyer” on her resume —is making her mark instead as “Justice Woman,” the lead character in the popular web series she created and launched in 2012. And for which she has won numerous awards including an “Outstanding Lead Actress” award at the 2013 L.A. Web Festival, the very first “Excellence in Multimedia” award from the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors, the “Best Sexy Actress” award at the 2014 Rome Web Awards, and the “Golden Star” award at the 2015 Rome Web Awards in Italy. Currently in post-production for Season 4, the show has earned positive reviews by NBC Latino and its first three seasons have garnered over 2 million views on its dedicated YouTube channel. Written, produced and directed by Vanessa, “Justice Woman” was inspired in part by her passion for superheroes growing up. The concept is also rooted in the disillusionment she experienced as an attorney. “Being a solo practitioner was an eye opening experience as I got to see firsthand how our legal system and the people in charge of it can work for both good and bad under the guise of the law”.

The series follows the story of Sofía Escala, a.k.a. Justice Woman, a spunky Assistant D.A. by day, defender of truth and justice by night. With the help of her office-mate and sidekick Robert (Roberta) Gallion, she fights to right the wrongs committed against the innocent and powerless by a corrupt legal system – and naturally winds up in some tight spots along the way.
 A smart, funny, fast-paced series with a touch of risqué business and perhaps the first Latina superhero and gay sidekick duo ever, “Justice Woman” tackles serious issues, but with large doses of campy humor.
 Expanding her creative outreach further, Vanessa has written a comic book entitled “Justice Woman Begins” and has designs on eventually translating “Justice Woman” into a television series and musical play.

Vanessa produced and starred in “H.O.M.E.,” a feature film by award winning director Daniel Maldonado, and “The Hunting of Lost Characters”, a short film by multiple Emmy-award winning director Gustavo Sampaio. She also produced the “Latino Thought Makers Live Series, hosted by Rick Najera” at Oxnard College, which spotlights influential Latinos in the fields of Performing Arts, Politics, and Social Issues. Her play “Implications of Cohabitation”, which she wrote and stars in, is currently playing at the Clurman, Theatre Row (NYC), from August 5th till the 26th. Last but certainly not least, Vanessa is a recording her very first solo album, a bilingual urban Latin album, titled “Soy Mujer” (“I am Woman”), with multiple Grammy- and Billboard award winning producers Kenny O’Brien and DJ Napoles.

An active blogger who writes about current events and the reasoning behind her many artistic endeavors, Vanessa has written articles for NBC Latino, Latin Heat Entertainment, PolicyMic and MOSH.Opinions, and has been praised for her writing by fellow Latina actress/producer Eva Longoria. Vanessa was named one of the 25 Club Leaders of the Future–New York 2013 by Latino Leaders Magazine.

Destined for a multi-faceted life and career from her earliest days, Vanessa started acting, singing and dancing at age four, encouraged by her mother, a trained dancer in Spanish dance whose own mother (Vanessa’s grandmother) would take her every weekend to sing live at the local radio station in her native Ecuador. Coming from a family that valued the performing arts – but also stressed the importance of a strong education and practical career path – it’s logical that Vanessa would eventually find her way back to performing after a lengthy college and law school hiatus. 
A graduate of both the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Seton Hall University School of Law, Vanessa returned to acting during law school when she joined the theater student group there. With a knack for developing strong yet vulnerable characters, she has appeared in numerous theater productions and films since graduating from AADA.

She got into filmmaking as a result of acting and writing. Having done theater throughout New York City, Vanessa decided to give film a chance and discovered that she loved it just as much. Co-writing the award-winning short film “Danny First” – based on the story of her relationship with her brother Tony, who is autistic – further impressed upon her the power of film to move and inspire a much wider audience.
 Having traveled and lived abroad, Vanessa – who studied in Paris and Italy, and worked in Milan during her undergrad days as a computer information systems major at Baruch College – brings a rich multi-perspective to her projects – not to mention that she is a polyglot, speaking five languages, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese and English.

Described by her peers as “a compassionate fighter with captivating strength and sassy humor,” Vanessa aspires to awaken our inner warriors through her art.
