So, how does a former NCAA Tennis Player with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy end up in the entertainment industry?
Conan the Destroyer. Yes, the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.
As a kid, I couldn't get enough of the magic, sorcery, and sword-fighting. Fast-forward to two college diplomas (funny enough, Arnold was the "Governator" at the time and signed my college diploma), a Masters Degree, and a Social Work career later, I went ALL IN with pursuing an acting career.
One fateful day while working at the Cheesecake Factory, I happen to drop off a salad for an agent, who gave me the best piece of career advice: study with Anthony Abeson. I found him, joined his class, and never wanted to leave. Before I knew it, I had the honor of sharing the screen with Susan Sarandon (Ace the Case: Manhattan Mystery), Naomi Watts (Gypsy), Aidan Quinn (Elementary), and Donnie Wahlberg (Blue Bloods). For reals.
Outside of acting, I love doing Muay Thai, exploring New York City, planning my next vacation abroad (I travel to a different country every year!) and taking advantage of my AMC Stubs membership. I geek out on Golden Retriever puppies on Instagram (my favorite account is manu_and_luke), Game of Thrones, and Roger Federer.
P.S. I used to hate my name as a kid because I could never find a keychain with my name on it at Disneyland -- or anywhere for that matter, but now I love it and appreciate it. Apparently, it's also a very popular dog name. Woof.
