I want to tell stories and bring smiles
I'm a Bay Area native who is now based in Southern California. After graduating high school, I joined the Foothill Theatre Conservatory in Los Altos Hills for their two-year program. I performed in local community theatre and became a member of CSz San Jose's professional company in 2013. There, I performed ComedySportz (short-form improv), taught workshops and led team-building for a multitude of companies throughout Silicon Valley. I am currently a student at Chapman University and will graduate with a BFA in Theatre Performance come May 2017.
It's going well, I think
