Elaine Del Valle began an acting career in 1994. She studied acting at Carnegie Hall under the legendary Wynn Handman.

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. (reasons.com) Elaine's production company, Del Valle Productions, soon became sought after for its truthful insights into the urban latino experience, writing style, quality productions, and casting of on camera talent. Del Valle has since cast and/or produced many short films, features, documentary, commercial and web series. Her clients include McDonald's, BET, Discovery, Comedy Central, Chobani, Jack Links, Time, Inc, AARP, Walgreens, Capital One and more.
In 2015 Elaine was responsible for pitching and later negotiating a "first of its kind" deal for interstitial programming to the HBO Network. Her original web series production of Gran'pa Knows Best (by William D. Caballero) began airing on the Network in September 2015 and its second season is set to debut Summer 2016.
