Futaba Shioda was raised in the quiet streets of New England as a Japanese American child of immigrants. They saw a regional production of Peter Pan and thought, "Maybe I can be whatever I want to be..."

While attending NYU Tisch School of the Art's musical theatre program at the New Studio on Broadway, Futaba started exploring untold stories and was sparked by the pressing need to connect people through art.

After coming out as a non binary trans boy, Futaba began witnessing the powerful impact and universality of specific experiences.They relish in the complexities of being a queer actor of color.

They are based in NYC with dual citizenships in the US and Japan.
