Cole Horibe was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He began martial arts at the age of 4 studying many different disciplines of martial arts, including Taekwondo and Kung Fu. (He has a black belt in Taekwondo, and is a collegiate national and junior olympic silver medalist, as well as a Siu Lum Pai graduate–black belt equivalent.)

Since childhood, Cole dreamt of becoming a film actor, which eventually led to him taking up dancing at a later point in his life after watching his sister, Cara Horibe, (ABDC’s Fanny Pak) dance for many years.  After several years of dance training, Cole auditioned for “So You Think You Can Dance” hoping to gain national and international exposure. He placed 2nd runner-up and went on to star in David Henry Hwang’s world premiere of “Kung Fu” in NYC. Since the closing of “Kung Fu,” Cole has continued to pursue his acting dream.

Cole is currently living in New York City, but travels frequently to Los Angeles and Hawaii.
