She was named "Trendsetter" at the 2013 MultiCultural Media Forum, and has been recognized by CNN en Español, The Hispanic Organization for Latin Actors, Fox News, NBC News and the New York Times, amongst others.Elaine Del Valle began an acting career in 1994. She studied acting at Carnegie Hall under the legendary Wynn Handman. As a Latina Actress, Elaine became increasingly aware at the lack of leading roles available to Hispanic actors; as such she wrote and developed her true coming of age story as a one woman stage play, Brownsville Bred. Brownsville Bred took the theater festival market by storm, winning several awards before being picked up for full production, eventually bringing her to the prestigious 59E59 Theaters. Critically acclaimed, Brownsville Bred garnered Del Valle a dedicated following. Elaine performed the one woman stage play at multiple venues, including New York's legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe, where it became the most successful running play in the famed art house 37 year history. Many "Special Presentations" were performed at and by the request of such noted names as The Time Warner Corporation and New York City's Summer Stage.Elaine's move from theater to writing and film production came by way of what was also her directorial debut, and first web series, Reasons Y I'm Single.
