I may seem like a mid-West girl (and I do love the country) but I was born and raised in Hawaii! My mom couldn’t stop me from singing at age 2, and shortly after I was on stage in musicals and plays in community theater.
Our high school was annually invited to the International Thespian Festival in Nebraska and I was lucky enough to appear as Nellie Forbush in “South Pacific” under the direction of Ron Bright. Peter Coxhead, the founder of Mountview, a theater conservatory in London, England saw my performance and offered me a place at the school on the spot! With a push to graduate a year early from high school I happily hopped across two ponds to be immersed in acting, singing, and dancing.
After graduation, New York was the place to be – auditioning and being cast regionally in roles such as Eva Peron in Evita, and in a few years earning my Equity card and touring the country. Back in New York opportunities on camera kept my skills growing, and with a spot in the Top 7 of the Metropolitan Room’s MetroStar competition, I’ve been lead to the stages of New York City’s cabaret venues, including the gorgeous 54 Below. Excited for more adventures performing in the city and beyond!
