Hi! I’m Christina. I love dogs, chocolate, and the ocean.
Raised by Chinese and Italian-American parents, I am a multicultural woman (she/her/hers) with roots in New Jersey, Tokyo, Beijing, and California. I had a pretty nomadic childhood, so theatre and organized sports are what kept me grounded. My parents raised me and my sister to be fluent in both English and Mandarin so we could communicate and connect with both sides of our family.
As a teenager, I spent most of my time onstage as an actress, on a football field as a cheerleader, or in a pool as a synchronized swimmer. My very first role, at age eight, was Turkey Child in Beijing Playhouse's production of A Christmas Carol. It was at age sixteen that my passion for acting truly ignited when I played Essie Carmichael, an eccentric, loving, and self-proclaimed ballerina, in You Can't Take It With You.
I recently spent five years in Boston, where I earned my BA in Theatre Performance from Northeastern University and worked at various Regional Theaters in the area, including the Lyric Stage Company of Boston, Company One, and SpeakEasy Stage. During this time I also trained at the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).
When I’m not acting, I’m either writing songs, writing plays, or seeing a show - I believe the best way to learn is through experience and there is nothing I love more than watching live theatre. If I’m not doing any of those things, you can probably find me at SoulCycle, taking a nap, or re-reading the Harry Potter series for the umpteenth time.
