Current and Upcoming Projects
Check here for what I’m currently doing, what I already did, and if I’m not dead, what I’ll eventually be doing.
American Stage Theatre
October 2 - November 3, 2019
I’ve been dying to perform in a straight play since graduation, and how awesome is it that it gets to be a Vietnamese-American story? VIETGONE is one of my dream shows, and I will be playing Nhan/Khue in the American Stage Theatre’s production in St. Petersburg, Florida which also happens to be the regional premiere of this iconic Qui Nguyen script. The production will be directed by Brian Balcom.
STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES
WHAT A RUSH! When this commercial dropped (my first time on camera), I was in the middle of shooting my first ever short film. I was SO ECSTATIC! I cannot put into words how exciting this was a kid new to NYC. Super thanks to Gina Manfredi at DDO Artists Agency, and Lauren Charkow Casting. This commercial made me SAG/AFTRA-Eligible, and introduced me to Ilana Glazer, who was as kind as can be, and amazing to learn from. I hope this commercial sold NIKE some shoes!
I had the fun opportunity to play a lead in a sketch directed by Greg Burke and produced by Lou Perez of We The Internet TV, both of them Upright Citizen Brigade alums. The sketch is meant to parody movies of white teacher saviors who are focused on the color of the students’ skin a little too much. We The Internet TV prides themselves on being “Equal Opportunity Offenders,” and I had so much fun working with them. The sketch turned out hilarious!
I recently landed the title role in my first short-film! Isaac is a 16-year old rapper who has to fight his way into the world of rap. With a absent father and virtually no resources, he’s gotta breakthrough on his own. We wrapped shooting in early September. Director/Writer: JaAnn Wang. Director of Photography: Tinx Chan.
June 1 - August 31, 2019 (Saturdays)
I’m excited to do my first show in NYC! I first saw Pinkalicious done one summer, and I fell in love with the show. It has so much heart and fun within it and the music is BOPPIN’! When I got a call from my friend that they were looking for a Peter, I jumped on the opportunity! Can’t believe I get to live my best Peter life while staying in my own apartment in NYC.
March 7 - April 7, 2019
EXTENDED until April 14, 2019
From reading to full blown production! Less than a year ago, the Aurora Theatre asked me to perform Sonny in their staged reading of this show, and I fell in love with it. I’m so very excited to be asked back-on-board for their fully mounted production. Writers Joseph Trefler (Music, add’l Lyrics) and Bill Nelson (Book and Lyrics) have created modern-day love story with the classic sound that gave rise to the love of musicals today. I’m ready to jump back in with those two and also Justin Anderson (Director), Ricardo Aponte (Choreographer), and Ann-Carol Pence (Music Director). Get ready, ATL!
SYNOPSIS: Louis, Max, and Sonny are charming, young and eligible bachelors looking to marry their way from rags to riches. This romantic romp is full of dreams, schemes and lavish musical numbers set in the golden age mecca of Manhattan in the 1950’s, with a twist. It’s an alternative gleaming, fabulous and mighty Big Apple. And two of our leading men are looking for husbands, oh my!

I lived for three weeks in NYC before I left for Atlanta which was not enough time to really move in at all! So I’m excited to be returning and right away be able to have my first performance in the city! I’ll be singing “Middle of a Moment” by Pasek and Paul along with some other songs. I’m so very happy I get to share the stage with some friends and great new artists who are also starting their journey in the big apple!
November 15, 2018 - December 23, 2018
Directly after I complete the Men With Money reading, I’ll stay in Atlanta to take part in Aurora Theatre’s sold-out Christmas Tradition. The team will consist of Anthony Rodriguez (Director), Ricardo Aponte (Director/Choreographer), and Ann-Carol Pence (Music Director). It’s a classic show that’s fresh every year! I’m ready to create and put on a show for all the smiling faces in the audience as one of eight Featured Performers!
October 1, 2018
I’m beyond, beyond, BEYOND excited to be a part of this Equity Staged Reading in which the show will see a world premiere in February. With music by Joseph Trefler and lyrics/book by Bill Nelson, I’ll be playing Sonny — one of the three bachelors looking for men with money! So excited to give new life to this character and to work with this team of Justin Anderson (director), Ann-Carol Pence (Music Director), Ricardo Aponte (choreographer). I’ve been looking forward to the day I would get to work at the Aurora Theatre, and I couldn’t ask for a better premiere project!
Hear, hear! On the 5th of September I officially moved to NYC with a signed lease and all. I’m excited to call NYC my new home!
May 26, 2018 - August 31, 2018
It's official! After I wrap-up The Little Mermaid @ Serenbe Playhouse, I'll be shipping off to Pagosa Springs, Colorado to play Ching Ho in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Carlos in Legally Blonde, and Indio in West Side Story in rep. The mountains of Colorado are calling to me to make some great theatre this summer!
