I'm a copywriter + writer of commercial and narrative work with 6 years experience in advertising, content and entertainment.

You haven't heard of me. 

But you've heard of the brands I've worked with—Acura, AT&T, Honda, Lionsgate, Quibi & Wells Fargo to name some. And you know the folks I've written sketch comedy for—Kevin Hart, Tim Chantarangsu (fka Delaghetto), Renny & David So.
I studied Journalism + Spanish Linguistics + Marketing @ Indiana University. After a year of the real world and two years of VCU Brandcenter, I earned my Master's (and portfolio). 

Nowadays I'm based in LA. I enjoy making things through a multicultural lens. I write scripted and unscripted comedy, ads and misc. content. I invent useless inventions. And I direct and edit. (I've won new business and shiny awards for some of the above.)

I aim to create shit worth feeling and bridge communities... all while striving to make "multicultural" what it is for me: just culture. ​​​​​​​

Thanks for reading. Don't forget to be kind and weird... we're all gonna die one day.
~lol and such~
If you want to know more, you insatiable mofos...
In the words of Marie Kondo, these things bring me joy: a good breaded tenderloin, chindogu, Edgar Wright films, Mike Judge, maps, Aunty Donna, Patton Oswalt, Theo Von (gang gang), How I Built This, bar trivia, the EPL/La Liga/MLS, trail running, cyling, the lush green outdoors, hapa culture, people weirder than me, language, watching cars stop to let all of the baby geese cross the road, and etceteras.
