Andrea Felix-Cervantes was raised in California between the Land of the Ohlone (Salinas) and the Yokut (Central Valley). Growing up in these areas, she had the luxury of seeing the parks and oceans in those areas and loves going on nature walks with her partner when they are not working

Andrea always had an artistic inclination since she was young and had an interest in theatre since she was in elementary school. They were able explore theatre through the Hartnell College theatre arts program and participate in the work from the community with companies like The Western Stage, California State University, Monterey Bay: The World Theatre, El Teatro Campesino, and Artists Ink. Andrea initially intended to pursue robotics, but then decided to focus on a professional theatre arts career as a stage manager with the support of her mother. 

Andrea obtained her AA-T in Theatre Arts 2018 and AS-T in Mathematics 2019 at Hartnell College. In 2019, Andrea transferred to California State University, Long Beach, where they received their BA in Technical Theatre Arts with a Minor in Film. Andrea has been living in the Southern California area since getting her BA.

She is slowly working on obtaining her AA in Spanish by Fall 2023 at Long Beach City College. 

For her commitment to theatre arts, Andrea was accepted into Hartnell College's Boronda International Study Program in 2016 to study abroad with fellow recipents in Paris, France.  Later, Andrea received honorable mention for their work as a stage manager while studying and was nominated for the Region 8 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Stage Management Fellowship (2018-9). In 2020, Andrea started working with them as a Student Advisory Board Member and is still with the organization as a graduated member. That same year, Andrea was honored with the Fine Arts Affiliates Scholarship by the College of the Arts at CSU, Long Beach and an Emerging Content Creator Scholarship Recipient by the National Association of Latino Independent Producers. Lime Arts Productions applauded Andrea for their technical work in virtually produced production, Radial Gradient, in their 2021 Twenty By Twenty Fringe Festival. 

Working virtually and in the Southern California area has provided Andrea the opportunity to work ​with so many teatristas and artists across the world. Since graduating, Andrea has expanded her portfolio and has worked with Lime Arts Productions, Teatro Espejo, Warner Brothers/Rail Events Inc., International City Theatre, South Coast Repertory, AMDA - College of the Performing Arts, The Downey Theatre, Breath of Fire Latina Theatre Ensemble, The Wallis, and Universal Studios Hollywood.
