I am a Lao American actor, director, teacher, and theatre producer currently living in Portland, Oregon. Originally from Arkansas, I received a BA in Theatre Arts from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith. I moved to Portland in 2011 to study at the Portland Actors Conservatory, where I am now an administrator and instructor. I then helped start Theatre Diaspora, a project of MediaRites that is committed to fiercely celebrating and creatively advocating for the Asian American/Pacific Islander experience through stage work. I am also a company member of Theatre Vertigo.
