2nd Place for Dance Against Asian Hate Short Film Contest
This is a piece I created to speak up about the role of skin color and how it has affected multiple cultures in the Asian community. Brown is beautiful and we should never have our worth be based on something as trivial as the color of our skin.
DIRECTOR | DESIGNER | CHOREOGRAPHER
I collaborated with three talented performers, Lauren Jose, Jo Sun, and Amanda Carmassi to create a creepy dance concept video for Halloween!
I Used to Dance
DIRECTOR | MOVEMENT DIRECTOR | COSTUME DESIGN
A collaboration with dancers of different styles and a cinematography team to create a dance film. This was inspired by my friends that have moved on from dance, but can't help but miss it. It is my way of saying that once dance becomes a part of your life, it will always stay with you.

David Michael Frank is a singer and songwriter that wanted to create an emotionally moving and beautiful video to accompany his song. He wanted the video to evoke the struggle of depression and fighting through dark times, but still allow room for interpretation for the viewer. I collaborated with him, the main dancer, and LAMP Productions to produce this music video.

Before I Left
CO-DIRECTOR | CHOREOGRAPHER | DANCER
I teamed up with Jenna Keiper, a documentary film major, to create this concept dance video inspired by my mother's internal thoughts and struggles as she prepared to leave her whole life in Philippines to immigrate to America to give her children a better life. I pulled the audio from an interview with her I had done for a school project a few years back, and choreographed movement that reflected what was going through her mind as she stood on the beach for the last time in the Philippines.
