Thanks for visiting my site! I am a SAG-AFTRA/ EMC actor and singer living in the concrete jungle where dreams are made of...New York City. I moved to NYC when I received a scholarship to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) for musical theatre. I eventually went to play my dream role since I was five years old--Kim in Miss Saigon---at the beautiful Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ, and again in Midtown Arts Center in Fort Collins, CO (and won a BroadwayWorld Denver Award for Best Actress!) My other favorite roles that I've done include Anita in West Side Story, Joanne in Rent, Lucy in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, Janet Van de Graaff in The Drowsy Chaperone, Christmas Eve in Avenue Q, and Meg in Little Women. I also originated the role of Hannah in Vital Theater's StinkyKids the Musical---which won an Off Broadway Alliance Award Winner for Best Family Musical. I have worked and toured all over the U.S., and have recently performed in two sold out concerts in Tochigi and Tokyo, Japan for a second time just this July. This year, I've played a supporting role in "Nanay Ko!" my first feature film (a movie musical) which also stars Prince Charming in Disney's Cinderella, Paolo Montalban. 

I am a huge geek for the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and I "casually cosplay" for fun. (Follow my cosplaying Instagram @dailycasualcosplays). I am very passionate about diversity in art and media, and my ultimate dream is to do a project that could get me at a Comiccon panel in front of a room full of my  "peeps".
