I went to school in Puerto Rico at Colegio San Felipe, Nuestra Sra. Del Carmen and Colegio Evangelico Capitan Correa. I graduated from High School in 1993
I went to college in Mayaguez at Universidad de Puerto Rico Recinto Universitario de Mayaguez (RUM), formerly known as Colegio Agricultura y Artes Mecanicas (CAAM). I finished a BS in Chemical Engineering and a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering (specialization in Environmental Engineer). In 2011 I completed an A.S. in Theatre Arts, and in 2013 an A.A.S. in Business Administration and Accounting.
I started doing pro-wrestling since 1999 while finishing my BS in Chemical Engineering (I was 22 years old).
I moved to Troy in 2004, now I live in Albany, NY. I move to to the area in August 2004 to go to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) for graduate school. I used to work as an environmental engineer for the NYS DEC in Albany until November 2009.
From November 2009 until March 2013 I was unemployed. I was able to recover from hardship.
I finished an A.S. in Theatre Arts at HVCC in 2011, and an Associates in Business Administration and Accounting in 2013 at Hudson Valley Community College. I now work weekends as a Lab Technician at Lenscrafters and for the New York State Department of Tax and Finance. I still do work as a fight choreographer and actress, and perform at burlesque shows.
I am a pro-wrestler. I began in the business in 1999 in Puerto Rico my trainer Oscar Beniquez, aka Pepe Gomez in WWC, aka El Rockero. I also trained in 2001 at the Monster Factory in NJ. I was training from Feb 2015- June 2016 at the In Your Face Wrestling Academy to keep my skills (feel free check their web page on the link section). Right now I am training at Kevin Landry's pro-wrestling Combine school in Holyoke, MA. I used to practice martial arts (bo staff, kendo sword, Jeet Kune Do).
I am a local actress involved in local comunity theater (since 2005). I have trained in "stage combat" (term used to describe fights in movies and theatre, basically fight choreography) in New York City and in the summer of 2007 at North Carolina School of the Arts. I am one the few fight choreographers in Albany, NY and the New York Capital Region. Some of the shows I have choreographed include: "As You Like it", "Macbeth", "Twelfth Night", "I Hate Hamlet", "Man of La Mancha", "Romeo and Juliet", and "Hamlet". Below you can see a sample of my work and if you wish to learn more or need a fight choreographer for your theatrical production feel free to contact me. I also like watching movies, pro-wrestling and listening to music, playing video games and a bunch of other things.
Finally, I am a transgender woman (a male-to-female transsexual) My prefered name is Paola Jazmin or P.J. I might be the first transgender woman that is a professional wrestler and fight choreographer. (If I am not feel free to let me know.)
