I'm a Los Angeles native with a passion for 70s rock and roll, oversized knit sweaters, and cheap wine.
My love for the stage began with a reverence for Vaganova-style ballet, and eventually broadened into other dance styles and performance art forms.
I moved to New York in the fall of 2021 and made my Broadway debut in the winter of 2022 with the company of A Beautiful Noise as an OBC swing. It's been an uphill dream from then on.
I'm half Japanese and deeply rooted in my heritage --- I spent most of my childhood hopping back and forth between my maternal grandma's house in Kobe and my hometown in LA. I was raised by two devoted, fiercely driven parents from whom I have so graciously inherited their hard-headedness and sharp tongue. But don't tell my mom that I said that about her.
When I'm not performing, I like cooking (and eating), listening to true crime podcasts, taking bubble baths, and being outdoors. I like to act like I'm tough, but I make it a point to stop and pet every dog I see.
