“See the light in each other. Be the light for each other.”

I am an actress, filmmaker currently living in Los Angeles, but with a giant piece of my heart back home in the Philippines...where my dearest of friends and my Mom still live.

While I consider myself a citizen of this world and a human being first...
I am a woman, an Asian-American, a Filipina too.

And I strive to use every facet of who I am, where I'm from and where I want to be to weave life into my stories.

Much love,
