Hi! I'm a first generation Filipino American actor, musician, and vocal director based in Los Angeles. My favorite worlds of music are choir, a cappella, cabaret shows, devised theater, pop music, Shakespeare shows with music, and any musical with instruments onstage. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in musical theater in 2022 and eager to be put to work, and to continue learning!
Originally from the Bay Area, I grew up in my children's choir (Piedmont Choirs) where I received the majority of my musical training and inspiration. In my sophomore year of high school I realized that my choir experience gave me the tools needed to succeed at my first music direction job, which was to accompany and MD the musical [Title of Show]. Since then, I've been the vocal director and accompanist to most spaces I've performed in - musicals, my college a cappella group UCLA ScatterTones (we won 3rd place at ICCA 2022!), UCLA's annual fundraiser cabaret show BruinsCare, and my own devised theater piece based on the stories of immigrants called Hundreds of Stories. Most recently, I was vocal captain of The Tempest: An Immersive Experience at the Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles (April 2023), in which I acted as well. I also enjoy session/demo singing for musical theater, accompanying pop artists on piano/guitar, and arranging mash ups and medleys!
Some goals I'm doing my best to achieve: piano sight reading/becoming a more confident rehearsal pianist, cringing at my own songs less, not sugar-coating feedback to people I'm working with, and being good at using my looping station!
