Making new friends and connections at @phillyasianfilmfest - too brief and now it’s time to go! Thank you again Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival for screening our film and for organizing so many events (film and music) so far. Wish we could stay for more screenings and events this week butnow it’s time to go home. See you soon LA! 📸@junstinson
FOR IZZY – a beautiful, affecting feature by @therealalexchu starring Emmy nominee @themichelleang @jenny.soo #JimLau and the late, great @fongsung5254 – will be available on Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play starting next Thursday, 11/15!!!
I was blown away by this film and, though I would’ve loved to have seen it open wide in theaters, am very happy that it’ll now be available to all who haven’t been able to see it in festival (esp as it’s been racking up the awards).
Please consider watching, sharing it with friends and loved ones, and letting it change you.

This is a late post from Tuesday night at the @ultimatejamnight #bohemianrhapsody theme show. This is Brendan MacLaren. He was working hard coordinating with Adam Mandel (the guy that makes Tuesday’s UJM happen without chaos), Brendan is also a great singer and musician. #ultimatejamnight#whiskyagogo#westhollywood
Woke up this morning to an email from an animation studio in Atlanta. They heard my reel and want me to audition for a role in their new app. This journey brings me something new to unwrap almost everyday and I love it! #grateful
While walking along Boston Common a few days ago, @therealalexchu found a little bit of Canada everywhere along the way. Hopefully there will be more of Canada to come; yes the world needs more Canada, but the US even more so! Come see our Canadian premiere this Sunday in Vancouver!
Excited to share that I will have my photographs published in @slantdmedia’s Issue 02 accompanying poetry by @tiff.low. I started working on this project back in the spring and was able to push myself out of my comfort zone, making staged self-portraits in my makeshift studio. Pre-orders for Issue 02 open tomorrow 11/1. Please follow @slantdmedia for more info on the publication and how to order!
Closing night at #newfest30 . Thank you to all the staff, volunteers, sponsors, fellow filmmakers and audiences for a wonderful week of films, new friends and for screening our film! It’s been 30 years since your first festival and the stories being told on screen today have never been more important and resonant in today’s climate (and 🇺🇸don’t forget to vote Nov 6!). Thank you 🙏🏽 ❤️
A blast from the past! Baby Actor Nancy got these very first headshots done almost 6 years ago. •
Back then, I was a fresh conservatory graduate who didn’t know a lick about “the business” of tv, stage, and film. I remember bringing clothes I felt good in, clothes I thought made me look good, and trying to take the photographer’s note to “relax my hands” because I was holding on anything and everything with dear life while smizing to pretend I didn’t feel caught in the headlights 😳 The fact that some photos were usable - and indeed, even castable! were a 🤯 to me. •
To be honest, knowing more now than I did then, I tell myself I would have done things differently. And yet, this photo got me my first manager. My first agent. My first commercial. My first TV gig. •
My start up friend @uncommonly_v recently shared with me her gentle reminder that “this is only the beginning”. Although I have more experience, this is only the beginning. Just as I felt insecure and throwing spaghetti against a wall then, I am allowed to feel the same way now. But that doesn’t mean I’m not making progress. And that I’m not getting somewhere future Nancy wouldn’t be happy to be. •

Happy Birthday Stacey! The first movie I was ever in, was Stacey’s. It was an award winning film and she’s a Black Filmmaker Hall of Fame inductee. She’s LITERALLY the reason I’m in the film biz today. Here we are with amazing actor Myers Clark. Originally from Detroit by way of San Francisco and now LA. I love my world! I love all the amazing creative souls I’ve been blessed to meet along the way. Sometimes you MUST get up off your ass and go hang! It’s always worth it.
Thank you @bostonaafilm for being such amazing hosts for our screening! Please donate to this wonderful team of volunteers who are committed to giving voice to issues important to the #aapi community. Support organizations like these whose mission is not only to show a wide array of films but to do so with the intent to serve a great good. Thank you! 🙏🏽
