LA-based concept artist.


"As a Korean-American female, I want to pave the way for future generations and exemplify how women are fully capable of working in video games/film/TV. I also want to share my story and design diverse characters for others to look up to, as I remember not having any female Asian role models growing up."

"I want to make documentaries on women in India. I want to make films and have that side of Indian women brought to light in America because I hardly see anything like that. Also being able to model for something and have a little Indian girl look at that and be like, hey, that’s an Indian girl, maybe I could do something like that too, because I never had that growing up."

"I want my work to inspire young, aspirational women to have an opinion and not be sorry about it. I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother who instilled so much confidence in me—if I can share even the tiniest bit of that, I would consider myself ‘successful."
