Originally from the Philippines, Tisha immigrated to the United States at three years old, settling in California with her family. She discovered acting at a young age and enrolled in the Orange County School of the Performing Arts followed by multiple summers at Shakespeare Orange County where she studied alongside seasoned actors and also joined the CalArts intensive acting program. She has aspirations to continue her career into film and down the line run a production company of her own where she can create stories centered on diversity and the immigrant experience. She loves acting for the ability to step into another person’s shoes and explore their psychology. Diversity is important to her and she wants fans to watch her on screen and feel seen.
Tisha can be described as passionate and driven. Alongside acting, she is dedicated to her music, writing her own songs and playing the guitar and banjo, with goals of releasing a debut EP. When creating, she is influenced by American Folk and Jazz and inspired by musicians such as Madison Cunningham, Big Thief, and Sara Bareilles. She lives a sustainable lifestyle, focusing on Vegan and clean eating and being mindful of purchasing and consuming ethically sourced and sustainable products whenever possible. In her spare time she enjoys painting, reading, weight lifting, hiking, and rock climbing.
