What is your creative medium?
Tell us how you started your business / creative venture?
I started playing percussion in middle school and continued throughout all of high-school. I ended up falling in love with making music in general so I picked up guitar, piano, and singing as well. Nowadays music is an outlet for me to be my truest self.
Has your culture and heritage impacted your work? How so?
It has. I think a lot of Asian Americans have been shaped by the African American community through the arts of dance and music. Growing up, I would listen to a lot of Kanye West and look up to battle rappers such as Jin or Dumbfoundead. This cross section between the Asian American experience and Hip-Hop culture helps shape the music I really love listening to and making.
Has your family supported your creative journey? Did you have to overcome anything?
They’ve been supportive with the understanding that music is just a hobby. Anything more than that, and I’m sure they would have some reservations since creative careers are seen as a bit more unstable.
How long have you been doing your creative work?
I’ve been doing music production for 1 year now!
What made you choose this journey?
Making music makes me feel fulfilled.
