I’m a landscape architecture student from Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, currently attending Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I am pursuing minors in restoration ecology and urban planning. My design practice aims to makes explicit the relationship between social and environmental justice.
I’m also a freelance writer, critic, and film programmer. I primarily cover topics relating to design, film, and the environment. I’ve contributed to publications such as Film Comment, Screen Slate, MUBI, Hyperallergic, and the New York Review of Architecture. I’m a 2022 Documentary Magazine Editorial Fellow at the International Documentary Association.
I am profoundly deaf. I wore a unilateral cochlear implant until I was 12, when I had it removed due to chronic ear infections. I do not wear any hearing aids.
I’m a classically-trained percussionist with 11+ years of experience and am part of Cal Poly’s Polyrhythmics percussion ensemble, which puts on a concert every spring. I’ve also performed with their Wind Band and Wind Orchestra. These days, I’m mostly behind a drumset. I also love playing the ukulele.
My landscape architecture portfolio and recordings of past performances are available upon request.
