What does “diversity” mean to you?

An inclusion of disparate ethnicities from regions all over the world.



What was the most inspirational thing someone has told you?

Courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.


Any words of wisdom for young aspiring Asian American artists?

Imagine beyond the best you can.


What are you currently working on?

I’m working on a play set in a museum with Baroque interludes. There are over 35 roles for 10 actors. I’m also working on a contained three character post-apocalyptic play that will hopefully find its way to college students.
