My name is CRIENA [pronounced as krenuh]. Where the name is from is still a mystery.


A product of interracial romance, I was born in San Diego, California. Moved to the Philippines at a young age and spent most of my life there. Got the acting bug, moved to NYC to get an MFA from the Actors Studio Drama School, and hasn't left since.

When not acting, I create weird dance videos, travel, philosophize about the human experience, and champion actors of color.
