A singer, composer, and audio engineer by trade, I also play piano, viola, harmonica, guitar, koto (a traditional Japanese instrument), taiko (Japanese ensemble drum), and harp. Click the music tab to head to my music site with portfolios, performance dates, and demo reels.
I am an award-winning designer and creator of theatrical costumes, cosplay, skating costumes, tshirts, props, and fashion garments. I have exhibited at conventions and at the Toledo Museum of Art, and I am a 4-time Her Universe (Geek Couture) Fashion Show contestant.

With an upbringing in musical theatre and acting training from NYFA, USC, and other professional teachers, I have been performing on stage and in front of the camera for many years, whether as a chorus member or extra or in a leading or supporting role. See the acting tab for my IMDB page and resume.
Armed with over 10 years of Japanese study, a Bachelor's Degree in East Asian Languages and Cultures from USC, and JLPT N2 certification, I am a translator currently working in the manga/light novel localization industry. See the Japanese tab for a list of upcoming releases in U.S. bookstores.
