i'm a mixed asian-american, fat, queer, femme director, educator and collaborator originally from indiana.
i'm the daughter of a vietnamese refugee and a southern baptist appalachian and yes, it matters a lot to me.
i'm drawn to stories of diaspora and work that creates a bridge between otherness and belonging. from the crossroads of america to standing in the crossroads of identity.
i want to create work that expands the american identity beyond monoliths. i do theatre because it holds ritual- it allows us to inhabit the present and conjures our future and past.
currently, i'm spending this summer as a Drama League Directing Fellow at the Hangar Theatre.
i just finished working with Perseverance Theatre in Alaska as the Community and Education Coordinator on the Winter Bear Project. i just finished directing in the new play festival at UCLA am member of the second class of the Roundabout Directors Group, and was a directing apprentice at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
before that i was the SDC Observer on Hadestown with Rachel Chavkin, the learning and social accountability fellow at Baltimore Center Stage and a founding member of the Asian Pasifika Arts Collective.
i'm also an animal lover and a five star dogsitter.
