I was born in Bangkok, Thailand, grew up in Portland, Oregon, and joined the Air Force to serve my country. While based at Dyess AFB, 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 acting 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.
When not auditioning or working, being civically active is important to me. As a dual member of The American Legion Hollywood Post 43 and The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 43, I’m involved with the California Girls State Program to promote the next generation of young women to be proactive in their communities. Proudly an Oregon Girls State alumnus, I enthusiastically assist with interviewing and selecting candidates from Los Angeles area high schools.
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 hi. Of course you can always follow me on social media, as well. Have a look at a few honorable mentions below:
