Jared's Homepage

It's a RAISIN!
It's a BRUISE!

Jared has been performing for over 10 years. In second grade, he started Chinese folk dance with the Chinese Folk Dance Association, and Wushu with the San Francisco Wushu Team. 

Jared was brought into the opera world when Kwan Hung Opera asked for assistance with "Precious Lotus Lantern (Bo Leen Dung)." From there on, whenever opera clubs needed any help, Jared would come to the rescue without a second thought. In the past, Jared would be a soldier or background character, but recently Jared has been in roles that require a little talking and acting. 

Usually people think that as more generations are born in America, the Chinese culture will fade, but Jared refuses to see that happen.  As a second generation ABC he has and will continue to promote the Chinese culture and performing arts. 

"Many people expect a second generation ABC to know nothing about Chinese culture.. so I'm here to enlighten them."
