WHIZZ

I am a New York-based actress specializing in classical and contemporary work, especially new plays-in-development. Born in Canada, I grew up in China, France, and Texas, making my way to the East Coast for college, before finding an artistic home in NYC. My background in international affairs gives me a passion for language and social change, and I am an advocate for equity, diversity, and inclusion in the arts.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with artists and companies such as the Mad Ones, Bedlam, blessed unrest, Ping Chong + Company, Theater J, among others. I have also been fortunate to work at Cherry Lane Theatre, Barrow Street Theatre, and Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in growing their artistic seasons, and I am a member of the 2017-18 Professional Training Company at the Actors Theatre of Louisville.

When not performing, I am teaching yoga or meditation, learning about metaphysics, studying dance and music, or reading a good book. I am grateful to my many teachers, including Wynn Handman, Sri Dharma Mittra, Shiva Rea, Janet Panetta, and Junghwa Park, among others.
