Island Productions’ upcoming theatrical production of Gruesome Playground Injuries by Rajiv Joseph – part of the Vancouver Fringe Festival’s Dramatic Works Series celebrating playwrights of Asian descent.

What is the highlight of your work?
The process of rehearsing, exploring, and refining through collaboration. The research. The collaboration!

Future goals:
Personal career goal: To forever be able to create and share stories with a large platform whether it be through painting, film, theatre or through teaching. I want to keep growing and learning.
