I grew up in Southern California, spending my summers at the beach and San Diego Zoo’s rainforest exhibit. In high school, I wrote and performed a depressing poem-monologue that won me a scholarship to study at SD Junior Theatre in Balboa Park. I also played Titania/Hippolyta at the Old Globe the summer before galavanting off to UCLA for a B.A. in English/Creative Writing. (I’ve published poetry and prose in journals, a textbook, and even a New York Times-bestselling anthology.)
After a year spent teaching English in Japan, I defected to Northern California, and have lived here ever since. In San Francisco, I’ve modeled for lifestyle/catalog/print the last few years and have been inspired to get back into acting. I’m slowly building a Theatrical Film/TV & Commercial reel, and have been on some awesome sets.
I’ve drawn for many years as well and began face painting at events a couple of years ago, including for Toyota at Outside Lands and for Nestle on Dia de Los Muertos.
If there’s a project I might be a good fit for, contact me through social media (got way too much spam when I had a contact form on this page). Hope to work together soon!
