I am a radio producer and musician based in Philadelphia.

I’m interested in sounds and see audio as way of building connections – whether that’s through music or radio. I was the 2016 Social Practice Lab artist-in-residence at Asian Arts Initiative, during which I worked closely on audio projects with young people in the Chinatown North neighborhood. We developed an audio sequencer that samples sounds recorded in the neighborhood called Chinatown Beats. I graduated from Oberlin College with Honors in Comparative American Studies. In 2017, I completed the Transom Story Workshop in Cape Cod, MA.
