(theater-maker; conceptual artist; writer / b. 1985)
Trained in Drama and Chinese, I’ve worked primarily in theater since moving to NYC in 2007, before expanding into other and weirder media, including web and performance art. Though in stasis with the pandemic, I have written & performed with Broken Box Mime Theater, an award-winning physical theater troupe based in New York since 2011.
I’m also founder of The KRNL, a simple open-source religion, and sole proprietor of Transcribblers, a boutique audio-and-video transcription firm specializing in high-quality transcription for a variety of production, research, and art institutions. I organize politically with NYC-DSA and others, and am a proud member of the Industrial Workers of the World.
