Ice Cream Connoisseur.


How it all started

After being adopted from An Khe (a town in Vietnam), I was raised in Seattle, WA where I followed in my sister's footsteps by joining team sports. Somewhere along the way, I traded my basketball shoes for jazz shoes. This decision sparked a passion for theatre that would lead me to incredible youth programs at prominent Seattle regional theatres, performing on the stages of the 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre and ArtsWest Playhouse.


This spark then led me all the way to Boston, MA where I graduated from Emerson College with a BFA in Musical Theatre. In addition to performance coursework and projects, I served as the Co-Chair of POWER (Protesting Oppression With Educational Reform), an activist collective of students of color


Now based in New York City, I strive to create an inclusive and equitable community in my work, both in the audience and within the company. I believe that theater with authentic representation can begin to dismantle outdated and harmful beliefs, bringing about cultural revolution   



God, I Hope I Get It!
