Hi there! You've found yourself at the biography section of my site. I'll try to keep it brief, while still being educational and eventful.
I'm a Thai-American comedian from Anchorage, Alaska, but I've been in Brooklyn for ages. I'm a graduate from the American Musical & Dramatic Academy (theatre and acting) and the New School (screen and television writing). I've studied improv and sketch at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCBT) in New York and Second City in Chicago. I've performed with Live Dubbed Sitcoms at Videology, and the UCBT improv teams Blush and Zaddy. Now I improvise at Asian AF at UCBT and the improvised This American Life at Caveat/UCBT. You can also find me performing improv, sketch, storytelling, characters, and sometimes dance (enough times that I'd like to mention it thank you) at other numerous New York comedy venues such as Reckless Theatre, the PIT, Annoyance, The Creek and the Cave, as well as some other lovely beer puddles.
I currently host "WOKE AF: A Mind-Opening Variety Show," an all-inclusive comedy show where performers share social issues that they're passionate about, every first Thursday of the month at 11 pm at UCBT East Village. I've also co-hosted "Not On My Reel," a show where we look at some great guest's worst stuff, with my talented friend Jon Bershad. I've worked with millennial news and culture website mic.com as a host for their daily news video series Mic Check.
I'm now well into my second season directing monthly sketch shows with Boogie Manja. I'm currently directing the sketch group Buff Cousins and the comedy show "What About Gayle" written by Chanel Carroll and Lagina King.
I like making videos too, esp. with funny, smart friends! If you want to see check out "Pair of Pears" and College Humor CH2 video "Ghost Wine" in the video part.
It's important to mention my partner in crime is a pug/beagle mix named Jay, who I'm now calling Jaysephine. In her life she has destroyed two expensive vibrators.
