In college, I continued this passion, both performing in several plays and taking various acting classes. I’m an experienced singer, a well versed actor and an ameateur acrobat.  

I love being a part of My Once Upon A Time because it brings so many of my passions together. Working as a cast member has been the accumulation of so many of the things that I enjoy in life, whether it be acting, or bringing joy to a child’s day.

I am currently a high school senior based in the Bay Area. I have loved to sing and perform since I was little. In middle school I joined SingOut musical theatre, and I’ve been there ever since, playing roles including Ariel (The Little Mermaid), Lily (Anastasia), and Val (A Chorus Line). I’ve been working with kids for years as a nanny, teacher’s assistant, and camp counselor. About two years ago I started doing character events and kids parties and immediately loved it. Seeing the smile on people’s faces when they see their favorite character always brightens my day, so I am thrilled to be a part of this cast bringing joy to kids.

I am currently a college student working towards my BA in Drama. I have been performing since I was 13 years old through many different organizations. The organization that I had stayed with longest was StarStruck Youth Organization, which is a non profit organization that teaches children different ways of musical theatre. There, I learned all of my basic training which includes: singing, dancing, and acting. I’ve studied dance for 8 years and have a specialty in jazz/musical theatre based dance. I have taken singing lessons for about 3 years working on my technique and classify my vocal range as a Soprano. Due to my love for performing, I searched out jobs that would put my performing skills to use. Using my performance skills I have worked for companies such as Happily Ever Laughter Parties as well as The Cinderella Company and have now become a Freelance Performer. I am overjoyed to be working with My Once Upon A Time and getting to see how they spread magic to everyone!

Hi, I'm Danny

Danny Headshot

 Growing up I always knew I was a performer. was inspired by the characters I saw on the big screen and those who brought them to life in reality. I picked up theater at an early age, got into stage performance, stunt work, martial arts, choreography and improv, which eventually led me to find my niche in Cosplay. 

Although it’s cliché, I still believe in the magic of meeting your heroes. Everyone deserves a chance to feel like the hero of their own story. That’s why I am so excited to be a part of this incredible ensemble!

Hi, I'm Denali

Hello I’m Denali ! I am currently a community college student working to get a cosmetology licence as of the fall semester.  Starting out in the cosplay world certainly propelled me into this work with plenty of love for entertaining. Dressing like my favorite comic and cartoon characters had been my hobby and passion since I was a kid with my first ever cosplay being violet of the incredibles at 12 and i didnt stop there. Quickly following came a love of musical theater and character writing that fueled my love of animated cinema. I got lucky enough to fall into My Once Upon a Time cast and this amazing job where I can combine these passions.
