Tia is a multicultural story-teller.
Being of Austrian and Singaporean descent, and having grown up in Singapore, Switzerland and Hong Kong, her passion lies in exploring multicultural identities.
Tia trained as an actor at LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore, during which time she played W1 in Samuel Beckett’s Play, directed by Sarah-Jane Scaife, Zhang Chunqiao in The Revolutionary Model Play 2.0, directed by Wang Chong (SIFA 2015), Elbow and Mariana in Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, and the App in Swipe Right, directed by Claire Wong. Upon graduation, Tia has appeared as Debbie in The Wedding Pig by Chelsea Cheo, Bernadette in Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons by Sam Steiner, and Portia in the Singapore Repertory Theatre's Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, while also dabbling in voiceover, hosting, and commercial work. In her most unconventional show thus far, Tia appeared as a scuba-diving Sea Goddess playing with a dragon in a 12m-deep aquarium.
Tia dreams of living every story there is to be lived, be it first-hand, through others, or through the characters that she plays.
