Her career began in her birthplace (Buenos Aires, Argentina), where her love of the arts consumed her daily life. She started as a singer and actress in the TV shows "Tardes De Sol," "Movete Con Georgina," and "Del Tomate." In 2000, she relocated to the United States and has since starred in over 100 theatre and film productions, further building upon her natural foundation in the performing arts. Additionally, she has worked as a lead singer, songwriter, producer, and as a solo artist. She also hosted the internationally renowned Underground Rebel Bingo events in NYC, D.C., Philadelphia, and Miami.

Over the past 8 years Rogue has immersed herself in her DJ career, training with some of NYC’s top DJs including DJ's Noumenon, Dirty Digits, and 2X USA DMC Champion DJ Esquire. In February of 2016, Rogue and Noumenon joined forces and co-founded Brooklyn Took It; a monthly event held at Friends and Lovers in Crown Heights, which has grown to be one of Brooklyn's favorite and most popular dance parties. She also hosted her own radio show alongside Stefane Be & Noumenon titled Mad Science, where they showcased a variety of Underground Hip-Hop talent on a weekly basis.

In March of 2016, Rogue's passion for Hip-Hop led her to connecting with Brooklyn-based Emcee Scienze. Since then, alongside their live band, they have performed together in venues such as Brooklyn Museum, Lincoln Center, Bowery Electric, among others. Rogue has also shared billings with legendary DJs such as Grand Wizzard Theodore, Prince Paul, Boogie Blind, Statik Selektah, J-Smoke, Amir Abdullah, and was the backing DJ for Jean Grae for Love Conquers All - A fundraiser for Black Lives Matter.

She quickly turned to music, painting, and writing to help her get through her battle. While going through several procedures and twelve rounds of Chemotherapy, Rogue continued to deliver passionate, high-energy performances for Brooklyn Took It, Spotify, SuperChief Gallery, and more. On December 8th, 2017, Rogue was officially declared to be in remission.
