My work has been recognized for artistic innovation by the Center for Cultural Innovation. I was a resident filmmaker with the Center for Asian American Media at the Ninth Street Independent Film Center.

Artistic Statement

I create hybrid forms of nonfiction media that interrogate the conventions of mainstream American storytelling. I center voices of immigrants and people of color as creators of their points of view in a complex and layered cultural landscape. Through the techniques of documentary, photography, and animation, my experiments with disparate styles reflect the schism often felt by those inhabiting multiple contradictory cultural spaces. By accessing the raw complexity of the multicultural experience, my art generates new representations and more authentic portrayals of our communities.

Affiliations

I am the co-founder of Re-Present Media and serve as a co-organizer of the East Bay Documentary Support Group.

Other
