I've been a working actor in Film, TV and Stage since 1990. I created the solo show Made in Taiwan. As a filmmaker, I most recently wrote/directed/produced the original digital short series called Scenes From a Real Marriage which I'm currently seeking financing to complete. My plunge into writing and directing was prompted by a deep frustration that there's simply a storytelling void for women in mid life and especially for women of color. I'm deeply interested in bringing personal narratives about identity, culture, and family into the mainstream in a way that feels honest, entertaining and compelling. My overall hope is to create more narratives for women, POC, Other and especially as an Asian American woman, I wish to explore themes of invisibility and how it is universal to everyone.
