Hi, I'm Uma.
I grew up singing and dancing with my mother and grandmother in San Francisco, California. Music and entertainment have always played a huge part in my life, whether I was at the piano during a recital or behind a drum on the field with the marching band. I started acting at age 14, when I performed in a Christmas show put on by a community theater in my town.
I graduated from the University of Miami with a BFA in Musical Theatre. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with such professionals as Lea Salonga (Les Mis, Once on This Island), Tom Jones (The Fantasticks), and Jeff Kready (A Gentleman's Guide...).
I am currently living in Brooklyn, and am writing furiously when I'm not either acting or working as a teaching artist.
