I’m a filmmaker, director/editor reppin' Richmond, BC with an affinity for stories that explore music-centric underground worlds in the Asian diaspora. I’ve recently decided that I'm going to do a fun little music doc about Richmond’s/Vancouver’s/Lower Mainland’s new wave Asian rap scene, and I’m developing my first feature, a coming of age, hip-hopera, and crime drama, "Chinatown Diner".
