Kiyo Takami was born in Sappporo (like Sapporo Beer!) and was raised in Tokyo, Japan. 

As soon as she finished high school, she packed two hand-me-down suite cases and moved to 'merica.  She taught herself English while studying acting, dance and music in NYC.

A huge lover of adventures, Kiyo has been blessed to perform and explore many cities throughout East Coast and beyond.  She has played many awesome characters like a mail-order bride, many whores, a child prodigy, a flight attendant, a Filipino boy and a bird.

In 2016, Kiyo founded a small theater company called Kitchen Table Works and created a site-specific production of Leonard Melfi's BIRDBATH.  

Kiyo lives in an old school tenement apartment in Brooklyn with her geeky husband Ike.  She is a proud cat lady.  When she is not performing she is often planning goofy home parties or picnics.  She is an avid world traveler.

Her life long goal is to become a morning person.
