I found my love of performing while growing up as a violinist. Having played for two decades, I’ve experienced everything from the thrill of soloing with professional orchestras to teaching excited youngsters how to properly bow on stage.
My acting journey began at the Michael Chekhov Actors Studio Boston, where I extensively studied both Chekhov and Meisner Techniques with Scott Fielding.
Most recently, I graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) with a MA in Acting Classical and Contemporary Text. At RCS, I developed ‘Mixed Up,’ a solo performance based on my own experience as a half-Asian/half-Caucasian woman and the disconnect between others’ assumptions about this experience with how I actually see myself.
As someone who almost never sees their own family or experience on stage or screen, this work is intrinsically connected with my desire to pursue projects supporting underrepresented stories and be the representation for others that I lacked while growing up. With luck, I will continue making work with artists and creators with a similar passion for expanding the status quo.
In my spare time, I enjoy finding hidden treasures at thrift stores, listening to audiobooks, and BBQ sauce. I am also a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® Teacher because I’m fascinated by the way movement integrates into our nervous systems, and the work complements and supports my acting.
