i wear many hats

I make photos, videos and motion graphics at KPCC, a National Public Radio affiliate in Los Angeles.

My focus is telling visual stories in unique ways. I believe that stories can only be impactful when art meets journalism.

I co-direct the Asian American Journalists Association's Voices program, a journalism training fellowship. Previously, I've been an adjunct instructor at the USC Annenberg School for Journalism and worked at newspapers across Southern California. I studied art at UCLA.

I’m available for freelance work.
