Art & Storytelling

 

I create art for healing, connecting and changing the world. 

As an artists, I started my training as a classical pianist at age of 3, Akahira Music Academy in Japan. My passion turned to singing and musical theatre towards late teen. Upon moving to Los Angeles in 2003, I worked as an actor & singer in various productions, joining Screens Actors Guild. 

After moving New York City in 2013, I started working with National Asian Artists Project founded by Broadway legend Baayork Lee. I've been selected as a finalist for Roger Sturtevant Musical Theatre Award from Actor's Equity Association. Performed with Lea Salonga at The Kennedy Center. 

As a photographer, my work has been seen on Forbes, Time Magazine. Recent clients includes The Public Theatre, Kristen Hanggi (Tony Nominated Dir.), The Confined Arts. Working with many artists for their events and  headshots.  

Most recently, I use my personal story and healing journey to create a trilogy of one woman show to bring awareness for diversity & inclusion, immigration story, women's rights, mental wellness.
