Hi! I'm Adam Tabellija - queer actor, singer, aerialist, proud Pinoy and animal-dad. Based in New York City, I was born and raised in Campbell, CA, and discovered theatre performing with Children's Musical Theatre of San Jose. My passion ignited for being on stage and entertaining others, and I knew my path was set!
Before long, I worked my way into the regional scene in Northern California, joined Actor's Equity, and began working professionally on stages throughout the Bay Area. Soon, I moved to NYC to pursue the dream, training at CAP21 Musical Theatre conservatory. Since then, my acting work has taken me around the world, playing diverse, unique roles that I have been proud to take on.
As an actor, I pride myself on making daring, unusual choices, pushing myself to find the truth in the material, and always approaching my work with a sense of authenticity. I'm passionate about new works, thrive in collaborative environments, and work to see an entertainment industry that truly reflects our diversity. I also have seven years of extensive training on aerial hoop and silks, and teach aerial hoop at Body & Pole here in NYC.
I'm also a pretty baller home cook and bartender, and created the wildly successful My Gay Bartender on TikTok, where I create and edit quality cocktail content, dishing out fabulous recipes and tips while keeping the audience laughing. I've collaborated with huge corporate companies for digital events, numerous small businesses to help promote their products, and even worked with country superstar Miranda Lambert!
I currently reside in Washington Heights with my wonderful partner Jonathan, and our fur-babies Riley and Mischa.
