Artist Statement

"Performing feels electric. I love the idea of taking people away from their day-to-day life to step into a different world. I love how art and laughter can connect my family from San Francisco to the Philippines. I love the exhilarating feeling of being present, creating, and hearing people laugh. Performing brings me joy and the sense of play performing encourages constantly inspires me. "
