Hi! My name is Myka ("mai-ka") and acting is my love offering to the world.
I've been a performer for as long as I can remember. From singing at annual family Christmas parties to classroom skits to plays and musicals. Performing was, and continues to be, my way of bringing people together.
I was born and raised in a Filipino-Chinese home in Manila before moving to New York City, where I studied Multimedia Storytelling at NYU Gallatin. After graduation, I made the commitment to continue honing my craft primarily as an actor, which landed me in Providence, Rhode Island, where I'm currently pursuing my MFA at Brown/Trinity Rep.
I've been lucky enough to have travelled to many places in Southeast Asia, Europe and the US and to have met so many wonderful people along the way. I carry all of these cherished people and experiences with me in every room, on every stage and in all the spaces I set foot in.
I am passionate about storytelling in all forms and mediums, wherever it is I get to embody stories of women — strong women, who defy societal expectations and overcome adversity. I'm excited by stories of adventure. Of the strange, the magical and fantastical. Of diversity. Of celebration. Of stories that make an impact, create cultures and illuminate all the joys and complexities of being human.
My goal is to leave the world a better and brighter place - one song, dance and story at a time. If you share this dream, please reach out and I'll look forward to getting to know you as well!
