As a visual journalist, my goal is to create character-driven stories that highlight current social issues around the Pacific Northwest.
Currently, I am a Video Journalist at The Seattle Times and the Seattle Chapter President of the Asian American Journalists Association where I build resources to promote diversity in media. Previously, I worked as a youth filmmaking educator and freelance photographer, specializing in mountain biking and climbing imagery.
