STAGE works

I was mesmerized by the magic that happens on stage since the first time I've been on one - playing an elf at age 4 in a Christmas production in Bath, UK. Since then, I've had the fortune of performing on many more stages as pianist, dancer, and actor, the latter of which brought me into sound designing and sound scaping for theatrical productions. When I auditioned for (and landed) the role of the Noble Consort Zhen/Pearl for Yangtze Theatre's production of the Emporess Dowager, my biggest scene was also the finale of the show - where I get thrown into a well - the gift of death.


Where there is death, there is rebirth - my role as an actor with the company ended with that production, and a   I became resident composer for the next 4 years - a spell-binding world I continue to explore through sound design and sound-shaping.
