I’m an interdisciplinary artist who makes dance, performance art, installations, and video. My work takes interest in geopolitics, social justice, queer glam, embodied risk-taking, and healing. I often draw directly from my mixed-race Southeast Asian, queer, and transgender experience. For more information, see my artist statement and check out my artist CV.
