I was born in Bangkok, Thailand, grew up in Portland, Oregon, and joined the Air Force to see the world. Unfortunately, I saw mostly the insides of warehouses in Abilene, TX. At least they were warehouses near the local theater scene where I kept up my acting chops. After my enlistment, I moved on a whim to Austin, TX, where I worked with some of the best in musical theatre and snagged my first agent. Eager for formal training, I relocated to LA to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where one of my favorite roles was Forgiveness, an 18th century Chinese woman with bound feet, in Lisa Loomer’s The Waiting Room. Other exhilarating projects include appearing alongside Laura Dern and Gary Cole in If All The Sky Were Paper at The Kirk Douglas Theater and playing a forensics tester in Close to Home on CBS. I’ve also enjoyed combining my theater and voice over talents by presenting and live narrating for The LA Stage Alliance Ovation Awards and the United States Veterans’ Artists Alliance Veterans Day events.
When I’m not auditioning or in class, being a volunteer in a variety of LA communities is my way of giving back. I love reading to children for events and organizations such as Dia de los Niños Boyle Heights, LA Public Libraries, and The Autumn Festival at The Aquarium of the Pacific. In addition, feeding our homeless at US Vets Inglewood and discussing tea customs at Camp Joseph Scott Correctional Facility are only a handful of other efforts in my diversified civic involvement.
Even though I get out and about, I’m a little bit of an introvert. If you happen to see me around town, please say hello. Of course you can always follow me on social media, as well.
