With careful attention to style and versatility, my adventures as a performer seek to pursue the passions of life.  Hailing from Honolulu, HI, I've been raised on the ideals of joyful work to cultivate the immunus qualities of happiness.  My academic endeavors have taken me 9,131 miles away from home as I've have the privilege to study in New York City and Florence, Italy.  Training in the fine arts has enhanced the finer things in life.  A young love of music has matured into a curation of dance, drama, laughter, food, and good company.  I chase success as much as the next person, but I wish for happiness in my work and for those whom I'm lucky enough to share my work with.

          Recognizing that my love for musical theatre is rooted in music, I have the honor of a Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance from NYU Steinhardt.  Some of my proudest moments at NYU include performing in City of Angels (Muñuoz/Pancho), Celebration (Potemkin), and Sweet Smell of Success (Club Zanzibar Singer).  Beyond performing, I've gained a hunger for the tedious creative process.  With generous guidance, I've had the opportunity to assist directors and choreographers in productions of Assassins, SpamalotCity of Angels, Fiorello!, and Hairspray.  Wherever my next project leads, I will seek to understand the process and always respect the finished product.
