I’m a playwright, composer, lyricist, and researcher based in the Bay Area, CA. My work most often deals with Asian-Americans grappling with the messiness of their identities as they relate to their unique American experiences. I’m also a technologist and am interested in building new theater experiences that mesh with technology. My work has been developed and produced with Underscore Theatre Company, the National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO), Musical Theatre Factory, PACE University, the O’Neill Theatre Center (NPC ‘22), the National Alliance for Musical Theatre (NAMT ‘22) Faultline Theatre in San Francisco, and Shotgun Players.
