A little bit about myself so you have an idea about my background and where I am coming from. I was born in France from a french mother and a half french half thai father, which consequently, makes me 3/4 french and 1/4 thai. I was then raised in Thailand from the age of maybe 3 and a half or 4 until I was 12 years old. At the age of 12 I was sent to study abroad in boarding schools in England until I was 19. For my undergraduate, I studied at Boston University and acquired my degree in Psychology. By the time I was 22, I had spent my life moving between 3-4 countries: Thailand, UK, France and USA. Between 1998 and 2005 I spent those years trying to figure out who I am and what I wanted to do.

It wasn’t until 2006 when I decided to pursue acting as a career and took off for New York to study acting at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. I finished my two year training in 2008 and had nothing going for me until 2012. That was the year I left New York and went to Thailand to shoot a movie called “Countdown.” From that movie I went on to receive Best Actor Awards from three of the most prestigious institutions of the country – The Thai National Film Association Award, The Bangkok Critics’ Assembly Award and the Golden Statue Award. The movie “Countdown” itself won Best Editing and Best Original Screenplay at the Thai National Film Association Award. It also made an appearance in Italy, England, USA where Birchtree Entertainment bought the distribution rights for North America. Since then, I have been a working actor. More details of my work will follow in the RESUME section. I hope I haven’t bored you with my “coming-to-be” and thank you for reading.
