Hi! I’m Christina. I love dogs, chocolate, and the ocean.

Raised by Chinese and Italian-American parents, Christina is a bilingual actress/singer/playwright who has roots in New Jersey, Tokyo, Beijing, and San Diego.

As a teenager, Christina was either performing onstage as an actress, on a football field as a cheerleader, or in a swimming pool as a synchronized swimmer. Her very first role, at age eight, was Turkey Child in Beijing Playhouse's production of A Christmas Carol. It was at age sixteen that her passion for acting truly ignited when she played Essie Carmichael in her high school's production of You Can't Take It With You.

Her favorite role to date is Jeanie in HAIR, and her dream role is Eliza Schuyler Hamilton in HAMILTON.

She recently graduated with a BA in Theatre Performance from Northeastern University. Previous training include acting intensives at the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).

When Christina is not acting, she is probably at SoulCycle, dog walking, or re-reading the Harry Potter series for the umpteenth time.
