I was raised in Kailua, on the beautiful island of Oahu. I was put into gymnastics and dance at a very young age. I was called in one day to audition to stunt double for Milla Jovovich in the film Ultraviolet. After booking the job, I spent four months in Hong Kong and two months in Shanghai. It was my very first movie experience, and my first time doing stunts and martial arts. After that film was finished, I decided to make the move to Los Angeles to pursue my dance and modeling career. On my first audition in LA I ended up booking my very first dance job, which was to be a Pussycat Doll. Being a Pussycat Doll, I was required to relocate to Las Vegas for the show, which took place in Caesar's Palace. I worked there for 8 months, before getting a call to audition for James Cameron's film, Avatar. I ended up landing the role of Zoe Saldana's stunt double, for the character of Neytiri. Which made me move back to Los Angeles. After working on Avatar for 3 years, my stunt career has taken off! Having doubled many A-list actresses like Kate Beckinsale, Milla Jovovich, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawerence, just to name a few. I still dance when when I can, but the stunt and acting life has taken over for me.
Im hoping to do some modeling in my spare time though. I love fashion and unique photo shoots. Because of my dance background I know how to strut down a catwalk(which is my favorite thing to do!) So Im looking for some runway work opportunities if anyone knows of any. I would love to get more experience in photo shoots as well. I feel like my portfolio isn't as strong as it could be. Thats why Im interested in this site. I want to build my portfolio with different photographers and maybe get some cool jobs along the way.
