“We have a subjective map of the world that guides our views and decisions, and defines our identity. But our identity is not what makes us human. It is a changeable construct much like computer code, which begs a much more profound question.”


Irvine, California, United States of America

Professional title:

I'm a writer/director and founder of ANIMALS Storytelling Studios. I have an ongoing music project under MIRS.

What do you do?

I write stories, often direct them in a visual medium while focusing on innovation, aesthetics and humanness.


I'm a creative because communicating intangibles helps to define our communal existence, which in turn makes me feel whole. The act of nothing to something is a lifelong fascination. Contributing to a shared experience through a distributable form, whether ugly or splendid is calmness.

What should we read?

One that I constantly think about this year as I made a stronger effort towards interdisciplinary thinking is “ZERO TO ONE” by Peter Thiel
