I'll take care of the rest.

I am an artist and an activist.


The two are intertwined.

I am an artist and an activist.


The two are intertwined.

As a woman of color in media, I bring my identity into everything that I do. 

I am always asking: Whose faces do we see on our screens and whose do we not? Whose stories get to be told and whose are left out?

My work is inextricably informed by my matrix of identities as Chinese, as an immigrant, as a first generation American and as a woman.

Everything I make is colored by this.

As actors, our function is to tell good stories.


And as storytellers, our function is to build communities of radical empathy.

And as storytellers, our function is to build communities of radical empathy.

 

And when I'm not performing stories written by other people, I am building my own communities. The two below are my two most significant undertakings.

 

Names of women

I successfully crowd-funded $20,000 in August of 2016 to create a short film with an all women creative team about my abortion story. This project is now on national tour to college campuses and film festivals.

COLLECTIVE SEX

I originally created Collective Sex as a Brooklyn-based live storytelling initiative. It has now transformed into a production company and a hub for activism. We produce our own stories/events and work with clients to help produce theirs.
