I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where I played a lot of violin as a kid, and then got more into choir and theater as a teen.
I went to Rice University and majored in Vocal/Opera Performance for a time, later switching to Asian Studies (Chinese Culture & History).
Hoping to find a "practical" career in the arts, I went to UC Berkeley School of Law and became an entertainment lawyer in S.F... Briefly.
I was having a blast doing theater on the side (community then regional), got agents for modeling and on-camera, joined AEA & SAG-AFTRA...
Finally I realized I had to go for it, so I went to The Boston Conservatory (now The Boston Conservatory at Berklee) for my theater degree.
Now I live in NYC, and am having the time of my life doing musicals and plays, film and TV, modeling and commercials... and hand modeling!
I still play the violin every now and then.
I also love cooking and all things food-related.
