I grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii and started modeling at 16. While studying at The Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York City, I worked as a model and actress. After relocating to Los Angeles, where I continued to model, act, and write for many years, I moved back to my college city of Portland, Oregon.


Though most of my work is now centralized in the Pacific Northwest, I still travel between the west and east coast, and abroad. I currently work in print, commercials, as a fit model, and teach/coach essay writing. 


Beyond work, I live for the great outdoors, especially exploring the jungles at home in Hawaii. I enjoy foraging for food, both in the islands and the Pacific Northwest, and continue to grow edible gardens wherever I live.
