Last night was the LA celebration for the Centennial year of Carnegie Mellon School of Drama....
Actor, VO Artist, Person
Growing up in San Diego, she did all the things a kid would do, played sports, got in trouble (sometimes) and went to school. Realizing in high school that she wanted to make acting her career, she applied to CMU’s pre-college program. The fit was right, and a year later she moved to Pittsburgh to complete her BFA in acting from Carnegie Mellon University. Now she’s in LA doing everything: TV, Film, Voice Over and Theater. For her each medium is uniquely thrilling, but no matter which, the goal is always the same. Tell ’em a good story.
What else? Family. With 3 siblings and an ever growing number of cousins, she is no stranger to drama. But from them she has learned patience and strength and most importantly how to cook. Her Chinese father and Filipino mother have taught her that food is lonely without family and family is more tolerable with wine. So Michelle keeps all three close.
Artist & athlete, foodie & host, sister & daughter, Michelle wears many hats. Through it all she is passionate, hard working, and always looking forward to the future.
