About Me


24 year old Asian-American filmmaker, originally from Los Angeles but currently living in Brooklyn, NY. I just moved back to the US from living in Sydney, Australia the past 2 years. Currently working at The Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, NY and working on short films when I can! :)

I love traveling and have had the best experiences of my life traveling around, meeting & learning from amazing people and seeing amazing things. Travel, food, and film, the 3 things I can always talk about haha.

Here is a link to my Directing/Production Design/Editing showreel:


everything is happening as it's supposed to happening
