ME for the benefit to know ME better

admin / Random Ramblings, Uncategorized / / 0 Comments

This little ditty I wrote because I was asked by my new manager, Michael John of Tigertainment Talent,to write a little something about myself. Enjoy!

LITTLE GIRL…. BIG HAND GESTURES

So you have asked me to write about myself, which in theory seems pretty simple but for a complex human being like me it may not be. Logistically I’m Filipina, which in industry terms can mean “ethnically ambiguous.” I’m a punch ya in the face kind of sister to my very talented yet clumsy older brother. I’m a difficult daughter to manage, which means I have amazing parents. I’m a super hero in training and my puppies are my weakness. I’m terrified of a lot but will do it anyways. I’m a loyal friend, a struggling idealist, I don’t always have a good sense of humor but I find myself hilarious. I don’t know anything about grammar even though I have a degree in English. I’m not brilliant but have my moments, I snore incredibly loud, I cry at cheesy movies and still think farts are funny. I think I will always find farts funny.

What I think makes me unique is not just my framework, the 4 foot 11 inches of explosive power (insert Wonder Woman theme music here), but the canvas of my spirit. Using cheesy air quotes I would have to say that I’m a “lover of life.” What I mean by that is that I love human beings and our complexities (a nice word for crazy). I love the unpredictable problems or joys that life offers and the crazy coincidences or the manipulated forced circumstances we experience. And with that I want to reflect this life back through story so that we can look at it, laugh at it, cry at it, and hopefully even learn from it. I’m open to how this story is told whether through acting, movement, words, or action. I’ve spent the majority of my life experiencing all these forms of expression so that I can be open to fully invest my whole being in the story being told. I’m versatile, passionate, highly trained, highly sensitive, and always growing.

Lastly, I have just come back from a ten day adventure in Pamplona, Spain, for a documentary called Sin Igual http://twitter.com/#!/SinIgualDoc. One of the highlights from this action packed trip is my three day run with the bulls in the famous Running of the Bulls. It was terrifying, thrilling, and incredibly life changing. I have unearthed a strength and courage that is beyond my comprehension but I ‘m excited to continue to explore. You can read more on this crazy adventure in my blog insert in Random Ramblings that will hopefully be up in a couple of days.

I AM MY OWN

I am an artist

I am a dancer

I am an actress who is discovering what that means

I am a singer with Karaoke ambitions

I am a friend, a sister, a daughter

I am a lover who dislikes the term in its flamboyance

I am a comedian in my own head

I am the cheesiest of cheeseballs who cries at the beauty of commercials with farting babies and the families that love them

I am a tomboy who has learned to embrace my feminine side

I am ambitious …another word  for crazy

I am a superstar yet to be discovered

I am a carefully organized rebel

I am a lover of books

I am a perfectionist finding out there is no true element of it

I am a lover of stars with their beauty and mystery of a world we have yet to discover

I am curious about everything and it did not kill my cat my dad hit it with the car.

A Bird’s Eye View… Welcome To My News Page

admin / Acting, Dance, Stunts, Uncategorized / / 0 Comments

Hello! Welcome to my news page where you get to read all the gory details about me!!!  Which really means all the everyday, maybe incohesive ramblings of the slightly imbalanced life of a Filipino gal from a middle class family living in LA.  Just a couple things to get out of the way, I am an actress, a dancer, and a stuntwoman which means I’m an artist.  Yes an artist, which some people call “crazy” but I translate into exciting, spontaneous, and brilliantly creative.  I am a friend, also known as “homey,” a sister, a daughter, a carefully organized rebel, and the cheesiest of cheese balls who cries at the beauty of commercials with the farting babies and the families that love them…. Awww sweet farting babies!  (If you would like to learn more about the gal nicknamed “Mighty” by some, “Moe” by others, go to the random rambling section of this page)

In other news… You can see me terrify viewers as a Terrorist Recruit in “Act of Valor” out in theaters and see me jumping off buildings, vaulting over people in the action packed movie “Colombiana” now out on DVD.

I’m honored to be “Sarah” in the film “Hail Satan,” that premiered at the Mann’s Chinese Theater, was just awarded the coveted Indie Spirit Award, and is now playing in the Horror International Film Festival in Sydney, Australia.

I had a blast kicking butt on a web series coordinated and 2nd unit directed by the incredibly talented and inspiring Mark Musashi and the amazing and powerful Solomon Brende.

Now for a brief nap… until tomorrow.
