"Be bebot bebot bebot be...Filipino! Filipino! Filipino" (Black Eyed Peas)


Yes, I am a proud Filipina, who loves to dance to a great beat and have fun.  When I was a kid, I loved "pretending" and "acting out" stories with my sister and cousins - but this was all "play" for me.  As a Filipina, I was the designated child to pursue a career in medicine.  I played the role of a good Filipina daughter until I broke it to my parents upon graduation that going to medical school was not in the cards for me.  So I found my way in higher education and developed into a well versed higher education administrator, earning both my BA in Psychology and MA in Intercultural Communication at San Diego State University; and my Educational Leadership Doctorate at the University of Southern California.  I currently serve as the STEM Marketing Public Affairs Officer for the College of Engineering at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and have been in this position since April 2011.  Prior to this, I served as the Associate Director for New Student Programs at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo from 2006-2011; and was at San Diego State University in various positions in both academic and student affairs from 1999-2006.  Having such a multi-faceted career in education, I didn't think there was anything else for me.


But I started feeling like I should be doing something else.  As I started to dabble in modeling and acting, with the encouragement of my best friend, I sought out an agent and enrolled in acting class.  I was delighted by the new, scary but exciting challenges that came with acting and I wanted more.  Having trained with Scott Rogers Studios in Hawaii and Iris Klein of Los Angeles, I have slowly but surely been building my acting credits in student films, such as Shero, Shattered Dreams, and Day Pass.  I am proud to have been part of the SAG-Signatory film, Angel by Thursday and have been seen in local print commercials for Aulani and American Savings Bank.  Most recently you can see me in the first ever stop-motion commercial filmed in Hawaii for Aloha Gas.   


When I am not educating students, training or auditioning, you can find me promoting healthy skin care through my Rodan+Fields business; going on a hike or taking a kickboxing class at the gym; or at a Padre or Charger game.
