ABOUT ME

Here you can find tons of updates, photos, and links to current/upcoming projects!

Hey there, I'm Jalon! I was born and raised in Southern California and since have had the pleasure to be a Los Angeles based actor and singer. I am a recent recipient of my MFA in Acting from UC Irvine and before that, graduated from Pepperdine University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Acting and picked up a cool award along the way (John Raitt Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Performing Arts - 2017). I have a passion for musical theatre and comedy with the goal of shedding truth through song and laughter. I was most recently seen as Sebastian in Musical Theatre West's production of Disney's The Little Mermaid. Check back in the Current or News tab to find out what I'll be up to next!

Offstage I teach in the undergraduate Drama Department at UC Irvine, do audition coaching, and create websites for fellow actors. Outside of theatre you can catch me studying new music, practicing yoga, learning to skateboard, reading, watching Youtube religiously, dabbling in interior design, and trying new restaurants.
