about

Welcome! Thanks for visiting!

A little bit about myself–

I am a Los Angeles-based writer, director, and performer. During my undergradute studies at UC Santa Barbara, I co-wrote, co-produced, and starred in a short film, Mustache Maria, which went on to receive the Audience Choice Award at Reel Loud Film Festival and premiered at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival. Later, I wrote and produced several short-play festivals with peers and theater friends. My experience writing for the stage inspired me to attend and earn an MFA in playwriting from University of Iowa Playwrights Workshop, where I wrote Koreans Eat Dog, Life of the Experiment, Waiting for Mr. Rogers, Monopoly, Family Dinner, and Trich. I am a recipient of the Iowa Arts Fellowship, the Richard Maibaum Playwriting Award, and the Paul Stephen Lim Playwriting Award from Kennedy Center.

After graduating from Iowa Playwrights Workshop, I went on to study improv comedy at iO West and Second City, as well as improvisational theater with Aretha Sills at Sills/Spolin Theater Works. I have performed at Green Gravel Comedy Festival, Laugh Riot Grrrl Festival, and written sketch comedy for LA Scripted Comedy Festival. I’m also the recipient of the Diversity Scholarship at The Improv Space where I continue to explore my mad skills in sketch comedy and improv. Most recently, I was accepted into the CBS Diversity Showcase as a writer.

I’ve written for the Sunday Sketch Show at iO West and currently perform every Friday night with my Mainstage team My Favorite Customer at The Improv Space. I recently joined the writing staff for LA’s topical news sketch show Top Story! Weekly at ACME Comedy Theater in Hollywood.  You can catch me telling stories about my life at open mics all over LA when I’m not watching HBO.
