Born in Queens and raised in Los Angeles, Kristian is an NYC-based actor and singer. She was most recently seen in the ensemble and understudying Patty and Ms. Sheinkopf (giving you VARIETY, people!) on the first national tour of School of Rock. As a proud Filipinx-American, she fills her LOADS of free New York time with training in Kali (Filipino Martial Arts), fumbling on the ukulele, and telling bad dad jokes.

Need some sweet soul? Kristian is also a background vocalist for Brooklyn-based space-pop artist, The Landing, performing at notable venues such as Webster Hall, Brooklyn Bowl, and The Bowery Electric. Looking for someone edgy? Kristian recently led her own alternative rock band Over The Pass, for whom she wrote original music with guitarist and metal-world-famous chef Brian Tsao, before the band disassembled hoping to be made into biopic legends. (EP is still available on iTunes.) If that weren't enough, she is also co-creator/producer/performer of the all women's cabaret, In The Boys' Club. Yup, she’s dabbling in writing too.

Other credits include Younger (Season 6), Here Lies Love (Public Theater), New York Musical Festival, Music Theater of Connecticut, and Disney Cruise Line. Kristian can’t wait to add her credits that are in the works down here, but that’s taboo, right? so check back soon.
