Creative practice: intertwining diverse media (music, theatre, visuals, and puppetry) to engage with social issues and cultural identities

- Through a journalistic approach to interview and research, I develop creative work that shines light on underrepresented narratives.

- Use storytelling to call for action and evoke healing.

- Incorporating puppetry to provide a safe distance for discussing controversial issues and expanding musical expression.

- Like to build things-- including custom instruments, puppets, and a smart mirror.

Research Interests

Creative Activism through musical and sonic storytelling, with perspectives from Afrofuturism, Afro-Asia, Asian American musicking, and funk.
