“Soma Room” (2021 Video Essay)


Back at the end of 2020 I was living in Boston studying printmaking and film at MassArt. At this time, I was processing many things in my life, and I was drawn to creating a video essay that spoke to some of the reflections I was having.

“Soma Room” is about the places where our soma / body feels the safest. It’s also an exploration of the contradictory powers of nature. It’s an acknowledgement of the warmth it can provide, and also the revelation that we are fragile when the mud cracks, or the winds don’t blow our way.

This project was shot during one day at the Arnold Arboretum on 16mm film.

“Jubilant Vex” is a Bay Area-based dance and horror film I directed and edited in 2022. It is inspired by the collective stress and mental toll created by the pandemic. 


It is a cathartic release inspired by our desire for connection and self-expression…which sometimes stands in conflict with our concern to protect ourselves from the unknown dangers of this deadly virus. This project was shot in San Francisco and was a collaboration with dancer Kim Ip and musicians Bastien Goat and Amma Ateria.

This is my first horror style film, and I am grateful for the experience to try something very different with my work. I am also proud to say that this film was included in the Dance Thrill Fest II at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco. Enjoy!

“Historia” Music Video

Films, Music, music video

I recently had the great fortune of directing and editing this music video for local multilingual artist Razteria.

It’s been a childhood dream of mine to shoot something at the historic Hotel Mac in Pt. Richmond, and so I’m thrilled we were able to make it happen on such short notice. It was also great joy to experiment with some new motion graphic techniques and a 1920s aesthetic too. Being able to do an old-timey gangster inspired phone improv was also a pleasure for me too.

I am honored to find out recently that this film was selected by the Prague Music Video Awards for their Autumn 2023 showcase. Hope you enjoy!

Travis Scott X Rugrats “Lose” Music Video

Experimental, Films, Music

I’ve been wanting to combine the dark pastel colors and surreal world of The Rugrats with the music of Travis Scott for a long time — weirdly enough they always felt like a perfect pairing.

Countless episodes combed through later and a song that symbolized the nervous energy of Chuckie Finster and here is the result. Enjoy! Link available here too.
