Born in Bronx, New York, Eileen enjoys quite an eclectic background: her father is Puerto Rican and her mother, although born in NY, comes from a mix of Cuban and Spanish blend. Her mother's family stepped foot in the US in 1868 following the tobacco trade as cigar workers, first in Key West, then finally settling in Ybor City (Tampa), Florida. Eileen is passionate about children's television, especially the world of Animation. She has been involved in several award winning projects including "Dora The Explorer" (Emmy Award Winner), "Phineas and Ferb" (Emmy Award Winner) and the long running PBS Science show "Newton's Apple". On stage Eileen appeared opposite the legendary Chita Rivera in "The House of Bernarda Alba" and the critically acclaimed original production of "Chavez Ravine" with Culture Clash (Mark Taper Forum) Critics proclaimed "Galindo integrates so seamlessly with the troupe that she could easily qualify as a fourth Culture Clash member". In 2010 Ms. Galindo was nominated for the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Featured Performance in "The Clean House" at International City Theatre in Long Beach, CA and won the Garland Award the same year. On the political front, Eileen served as a board member of the Screen Actor's Guild for three years. At only twenty one years of age, Eileen became instrumental in the non-traditional casting movement that gained momentum in the 1990s, putting herself on the picket lines to encourage Broadway producers to endorse diversity in casting. As a result, today Broadway is certainly more integrated.
