I am a professional actor and have performed at regional theatres in Seattle, Portland and the San Francisco Bay Area. I've also appeared in film, TV, web series and corporate industrials. I graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. in Sociology and am a proud member of Actors' Equity Association and Screen Actors Guild.
THE TALENTED ONES stage play
The American Dream teeters on the edge of the abyss as immigrants Cindy and Omar face their thwarted dreams and unraveling marriage while Omar’s buddy Patrick connives to push them over the edge. In this surprisingly funny dark comedy, trouble erupts one night when bad choices are followed by very bad choices. The stakes become lethal as these characters manipulate the truth and do anything to justify their desires.
THE TALENTED ONES is Artists Rep’s first new play development commission for Table|Room|Stage as part of the Oregon Community Foundation’s “Creative Heights Initiative.”

KING OF THE YEES stage play
For nearly 20 years, playwright Lauren Yee’s father Larry has been a driving force in the Yee Family Association, a seemingly obsolescent Chinese American men’s club formed 150 years ago in the wake of the Gold Rush. But when her father goes missing, Lauren must plunge into the rabbit hole of San Francisco Chinatown and confront a world both foreign and familiar.
At once bitingly hilarious and heartbreakingly honest, King of the Yees is an epic joyride across cultural, national and familial borders that explores what it means to truly be a Yee.

THE GAMERS: EPISODE 1 - THE SHADOW MENACE web series
At the end of THE GAMERS (2002), fantasy stereotypes Rogar, Nimble, Newmoon, and Ambrose accidentally stepped through a portal into our world, where they defeated their own players. They’ve been stuck here ever since, without direction or purpose. Until now.
A new gaming group has uncovered the group’s old character sheets and the original gamemaster’s campaign notes. Now, the new players will set out to finish the story of the original Gamers, encountering minions of The Shadow who have infiltrated our world while searching for a way to get back home.
Principal filming finished in Nov 2016. Currently in post-production.
ACT CORE COMPANY
I am grateful to join A Contemporary Theatre's 2017 season as a Core Company Member, to be featured in at least two mainstage shows and serve as an artistic ambassador throughout the season. This year’s company also includes Anne Allgood, Claudine Mboligikpelani Nako, Adam Standley and Ray Tagavilla.
“I’m thrilled that this group of talented and generous actors, a mix of established and emerging performers, has enthusiastically accepted the invitation to deepen their acting craft,” states Artistic Director, John Langs. “Being in the Core Company gives these actors a larger voice in the conversations around the work we program at ACT.”
