I want to use beautiful images and words to recenter the marginal, and make the arcane inclusive. I am passionate about visual culture and city building, and I shape myself into many different roles and disciplines to meet their evolving needs.
My research has recently focused on the art and architecture of the Philippines through a diasporic lens. My broader interests lie in contemporary and historic forms of transcultural exchange. I am also variably interested in family, language, public art, domestic space, urban life, suburban stories. I maintain an independent illustration practice in parallel with my research, which thrives on diverse collaborations in academia, foresight strategy, food and hospitality, and more.
