About Me

Since moving to NYC, I have been auditioning for roles in theatre, film, and television. In addition, this allows me to pursue another love of mine – working directly with children. I have an unwavering passion to use my acting career as a catalyst to creating a philanthropic organization reaching children of impoverished families living in third world countries. My belief is that when one gives back not only does it affect change at home and abroad but most importantly within.

I was born in Agana, Guam where most of my childhood was spent learning and growing overseas, allowing me to become extremely adaptable to my surroundings and to various types of people. Each summer away from college, I worked as a camp counselor managing daily activities of a diverse group of ten 10-year old boys and girls. Each summer was rewarding and bittersweet as it came time for me to leave to go back to school, but one summer was life-changing. I traveled to Jamaica for three months where our crew brought toys, toiletries to run down orphanages and slum homes. I will never forget my time there, which continues to shape and mold the person I am today. My hobbies include reading biographies, watching the Discovery Channel & Netflix documentaries, working out, & eating healthy (a diet which constitutes organic ingredients requiring my own food preparation).
