Director's Bio

As a mixed-raced filipina/white woman, I value the importance of intersectionality and honoring complexity within our stories and movements. I believe in building power through healing, creativity and cultural work. My vision is to weave stories of identity, resilience and imagination together so that we can cultivate authentic representations of people living at the intersections and fringes of our society.
