I am an actor, writer and new media content creator specializing in comedic video sketches, social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, etc…), blogging and the occasional fake science lecture.

My videos currently have over 10,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel "Shyaporn," with over 5 million video views. My videos have been featured on the Comedy Central and Attack of the Show blogs, as well as numerous other media outlets. My presentations on Godzilla biology for Nerd Nite and TEDx have been called “the best presentation ever” by the organizers, and a senior writer at The Colbert Report stated “it was as good as anything we do on the show” (followed by, “No, we’re not hiring.”) I also recently completed a year-long, daily toy photo and caption project which was featured in the ?uestlove and Artists Wanted “Art Takes Times Square” Project.

I am a graduate of the NYU Tisch School of the Arts acting program, where I studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory and the Classical Studio. I received the Tisch Creative Artist and Scholar Award.

I’ve studied traditional Shaolin kung fu for 10 years at Alan Lee’s Chinese Kung-Fu Wu-Su Association in New York, NY. I have certified in SAFD stage combat for hand-to-hand, rapier and dagger and broadsword. I have also studied boxing, kickboxing, kendo, fencing, aikido and tai chi. I practice Bikram yoga, and have run two New York Marathons.

Other interests include: Gotham Girls Roller Derby, Nerd Nite, TED Talks, Super Secret Science Club, Nona Varnado, Astoria Park Alliance
