Telly was born and raised in New York City. He grew up in a traditional Chinese home in Brooklyn, then
attended Carnegie Mellon University's School of Drama,
where he received most of his formal training in acting, singing, and dance.
In the fall of 2002, Telly made his Broadway debut in the revival of Flower Drum Song,
starring Lea Salonga, as a member of the ensemble and an understudy for Wang Ta.
Telly later achieved a Broadway dream by working with Stephen Sondheim in Roundabout's revival of
Pacific Overtures in 2005.
Telly then originated the role of Boq in the Chicago company of the hit musical Wicked.
When Telly returned from Chicago,
he gained a place in the Broadway company of RENT.
He was a member of the final company - and made his film debut in "RENT: Filmed Live on Broadway",
which is now available on DVD.
In 2011 and 2012, Telly co-starred in the Broadway revival of GODSPELL. In the fall of 2012, Telly co-starred in the new musical
ALLEGIANCE at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. He is expected to continue in the role when ALLEGIANCE moves to Broadway in the near future.
Telly has appeared on TV in "Law and Order: Criminal Intent", "Limelight" and as Warbler council member Wes in "Glee."
