I am grateful to Jordan for trusting me and collaborating with me to make me create a visual supplement to an emotionally vivid song.  This is the first time a musical artist gave me a chance to make something completely from my own vision. I got to light it, shoot it, and edit it to create this dark fantasy, with the support of a wonderful grip and gaff team. The distortions in speed, the changes in lighting, and the different moods in Jordan's performance were all meant to let us enter the mental void of an artist tumbling through emotional confusion and self-sabotage.

Julian and Noé is a Bay Area local food popup which makes organic vegan croissants. Started by two friends at UC Berkeley, these baker bros strive to deliver authentic French-quality croissants while incorporating a California consciousness in their food. This commercial was for their promotional and crowdfunding campaign in order to support their entrepreneurship as a food startup.

Chinatown by Chow Mane

More info...

Chinatown was my very first music video, and also Chow Mane's. We shot it during the Lunar New Year festival in San Francisco's Chinatown, making it one of the busiest and most festive times of the year for that neighborhood. The video celebrates the symbiosis of Asian and American culture by givings a nod to Hong Kong-style action movies, while combining it with modern trap culture. Chinatown is a lighthearted dedication to the generations of Asians in America, each decade bringing its own influences to American mainstream culture, while incorporating an American identity.

WOAH by Chow Mane

"WOAH" started as a simple video idea that turned into a green screen, some archival 80s clips, bleach jugs, and fake blood. It parodies trap videos, vaporwave, and death in general. But really, I don't even know what it is.
