It’s always a pleasure working with amazing vocalist Paulie Z. It was his idea to bring the orchestra to @ultimatejamnight and his leadership and coordination skills did not let the people down last night. It was a huge feat 22 songs with the bands, strings and horns without any rehearsal and it was amazing! #whiskyagogo

Rehearsing for Tuesday’s show at the #whiskyagogo #ultimatejamnight the theme is cinematic symphonic rock n roll. It’s the most challenging UJN I’ve played so far. #westhollywood
Nice surprise to see actress singer songwriter Mari Lauren last night. We wrote a song together for the @cherrypickingfilm that is currently heading to the film festival circuit.  Look out for it.

✨ The Cosmos NY Retreat ✨
🗓 Fri 10/5 - Sun 10/7
📍 Silent G Farms, 169 Stewart Rd 👉RSVP by 9/23:https://thecosmosnyretreat.splashthat.com/
I'm so excited to share the last Cosmos Retreat of 2018 will be in New York on a beautiful farm with that fall foliage. 🍁🍂 Y'all know I got those farm dreams...Those of you who know me know that I have struggled with my identity and it is only in the last year that I have begun to feel a tide shift in myself. I finally saw Asian people doing normal things on the big screen and the Netflix screen (@crazyrichasians @toalltheboysnetflix @searchingmovie @kimsconvenience) But the greatest driver of change has been building and meeting the incredible women of The Cosmos. 📣I've spent the majority of my years feeling like an outsider, and as a result, I doubted it would ever be possible to find a community that let me be all the things -- not just Asian, not just a woman, but all my identities, in harmony. If you have doubted this, too, I invite you to our Retreat. I invite you to find that idealist in you and invest in her, because she deserves to flourish and thrive. Ah I get so sappy on socials! Enough of my talk, I invite you to watch our video of our LA Retreat - shot, edited, and produced by the badass team @rebel_motion 
The Cosmos welcomes self-identifying women, gender non-conforming, and LGBTQIA individuals of Asian, Pacific Islander, South Asian, and mixed race descent. Please hep us share this opportunity with the Asian women in your life so we can reach more communities!

We filled this theatre full. Full with people who love local film, who support up and coming Asian filmmakers, who support diverse storytelling, who cares about investing time in new talent, who wants change in this industry, who are hungry to create great content, who knows VANCOUVER’s got talent. I’m so proud of us, as in our entire community of people who made last night happen. This is the #MAMM13 me and @nachsays envisioned and more. 
Special thank you to @vaffvancouver @alwaysmisscheerful @v_wmwong @reginaunplugged for making our wishes come true. You provided us and the filmmakers to learn and create and connect. Love you guys so much...❤️ And all the volunteers who helped run the night deserves all the praise! Thank you thank you thank you🙏🏻❤️ To all the filmmakers, thank you for inspiring me and the 400 plus audiences that were there last night! I hope you had a blast, and this leads to your next project and the next and so on✨ 
It’s impossible to thank everyone here, @nhitendo for hosting, the judges, the audience, the @riotheatre, the sponsors and supporters. 
It takes a village and I think we’ve got ourselves a good one in Vancouver 😘

In my second year of acting conservatory I took to heart a piece of advice every actor hears: “If you can do anything else in the world besides acting...do that instead.” This advice is meant to deter those who, being rigorously honest with themselves, aren’t suited for the actor’s life. In a job market that is oversaturated with actors and arguably less demand, mentors advise that you have to be 💯 committed to the craft, the business, and the journey (p.s. and accept that success is not guaranteed).
*
In fact, I participated in a summer writer’s colony before I committed to acting school.
*
In fact, even *in* school I wrote - workshopping a play, a feature, and a short film - before fearing this creative anchor would become my new “that instead” of acting. So in my second semester second year, I stopped typing my own words to focus exclusively on saying the words of others.
*
Although I fear being deeply out of practice, I want to explore being a human who can do both. To type the words of others here, ha: “I contain multitudes” (Walt Whitman).

Owning my Lawyer Mulan look!! I used to get low key / high key irritated when someone said I looked like Mulan... but now I’m just going to lean into it. It’s not a trip to LA without going to Daiso, which is the cutest Japanese dollar store. It might be a good thing that we don’t have these in Chicago bc I’d spend all my money there. Tonight is Childish Gambinooooo where I will be fangirling so hard!! Tomorrow at 8pm is Shithole, DM me for the secret location!! 😍😘

From a vacation self tape to TV. Took this fun idea from my buddy @zedrickrestauro and @weaudition. Was home in VA during the holidays and got the request to self tape. I just woke up (my hair) and was like, fuck it, let’s just do this now and had my sister @esterbarr read with me. Proof that you can book something off a self tape 🙂❤️🎬

I realized I've never posted here about the big project I've been working on all year. It's a gay supernatural mystery dating sim (you may have seen the sign at cons this year) called Shadowburg. I'm doing all the art, writing, and coding myself sooooo it's going kinda slow. but I have a short demo up you can try. (it's not a mobile game though so you need to download it to a computer. and your antivirus might try to block it but I swear it's safe!) I would love any feedback on it. I'll start introducing the characters tomorrow!

While I was at #MinidokaPilgrimage, I had the opportunity to meet @kaylaiso and hear about her #thesuitcaseproject she's been working on. The Suitcase Project asks yonsei and gosei (fourth and fifth generation Japanese Canadians and Americans) what they would pack if uprooted from their homes in a moment’s notice.  Over the course of nearly three months, more than 80 subjects ranging in age and background shared their stories from cities in British Columbia, Canada and Washington, USA.

This is the final weekend to check out her exhibition at @nikkeimuseum located in Burnaby, Canada. Find out more at suitcaseproject.ca.

I’m in LA LA LA land!!! Don’t mind me just floating along on this little cloud puff... back to reality in a few days but for now, using this time to relax and unwind and get back to dreaming of what I want for the future. People have ideas of what they want for me, but gotta check in with myself and figure out what I want. I like big butts, I mean BIG PLANS, and I cannot lie. I like my big butt too 😂🤣

I forgot that today wasn’t Sunday so here’s your weekly reminder that you can handle anything that life throws at you!  Yesterday I went to a wedding and I debated between this dress and a plain navy boring dress.  I thought about toning down all my “extra” to blend into the background even though I really love this dress.  I sat in self doubt the whole way to the wedding.  But WHY?  Other than showing up in a white gown, who’s gonna care what I wear to a wedding?  Wear what you love and let the happiness you feel in your own skin radiate out of you onto other people.  Yesterday, two roads diverged and I picked the sparkly one... and it made all the difference. 😉 
PS @themapleswoodland is such a gorgeous location!

Soaking up that Cali sun... dressed up to go to a matchmaking event with my mom... @omgitsasetup. 😂🤣 I always wanted a red dress but never felt confident enough to wear one... always felt like I’d stick out too much. I would never think of wearing a bright apple red dress to a Korean event but I did last night... some adults might not like it because it’s loud and not demure... but that’s not me either and I’m done trying to please people I don’t know or even care about. A psychic once said I clean up nice when I want to... I guess I can’t disagree? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Also, after 10 years of trying... I was able to curl my hair with a flat iron... it’s magical.

For weeks I've been pondering ways we can harness the energy behind the #GoldOpen movement and share that same love with our local Asian Pacific American (APA) artists. How do we do that? I think the answer is this: we show up for each other.
.
I believe the core of the #RepresentationMatters movement is the loving and powerful act of showing up. It got us out of our houses and into movie theaters to see Crazy Rich Asians where together we sent a powerful message to Hollywood that there is a demand for stories centered on and created by APAs. Let's continue that support for local APA artists who show up on the page, on the stage, on the screen, on the canvas. We support with our dollars, with our likes, with our shares, with our bodies, with our hearts. .
.
I'm not a powerful Hollywood executive. I'm a "fringe artist" in Austin, Texas as are many of my friends. But who says the fringe can't have power too? I have some ideas on how to mobilize our local artist community. I'm sure you do too. Let's gather at 5pm on Saturday, Sept 29th in the courtyard of The Vortex. The weather should be great by then. Grab a drink at the Butterfly Bar. Get some dinner at Patrizi's. And The VORTEX is donating a cool door prize to two lucky attendees: Two Free tickets to see at show at The Vortex! .
.
Bring your friends, your ideas, and be ready to discuss. We are going to move and shake. Let's go. It's time.
