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- i'm drawn to stories of diaspora and creating a bridge between otherness and belonging. from the crossroads of america to standing in the crossroads of my 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.
i am currently directing in the new play festival at UCLA, member of the second class of the Roundabout Directors Group and was recently 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.
