::: ARTIST STATEMENT :::
'Love loves' many things… art, cinema, design, cameras, technology and pop culture. But most of all, I love people.
Being a Visual Storyteller and Creative Producer encompasses everything I care about — especially connecting with and inspiring people through strong images and uplifting stories via filmmaking, photography, books and print, social media, fine art, product design, and unique interactive experiences.
As a tech nerd, I am excited to see how Web 3.0 and the Metaverse will change our online experiences and human connections, and how we tell stories and create art and value in this new digital landscape.
I am ever energized by the power of art and storytelling in all mediums, and how creativity makes an impact on the World around us. As a dedicated advocate for arts education, I also teach critical thinking, technical knowhow and the freedom of creative expression to empower youth and adults to use their voice — especially BIPOC, AAPI and underrepresented communities, providing them the skills and wisdom to tell their own stories through an authentic lens.
