Film has been a personal journey to becoming bold. It’s been a constant struggle of embracing fears and insecurities… learning to take risk. I’m still in the middle of it. But I hope to tell stories that are fun, reveal the human condition, and inspire curiosity.
(Director’s bio / no more than 100 words):
I am a director based out of Los Angeles. My film journey began at a marketing agency where I worked with hip-hop artists such as Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, and Kendrick Lamar, as well as international brands like Adidas, Red Bull, and Nike. Directing videos that have attracted upwards of 10 million views on YouTube, much of my work highlights the Chinese community in San Gabriel Valley. In the spring of 2015, I traveled to Taipei, Taiwan to direct an original narrative project titled “Picture Taipei”.
