Intro

This is a great place to add a tagline.

I'm a Perth based Australian filmmaker who was born in Johor, Malaysia in 1999 to parents of South Korean and Malaysian ancestry. 

I am passionate about the arts, and my skill set covers a range of areas including writing, directing, animation, editing and music composition.

Accolades

I have won over 300 awards in film internationally, and amassed over 700 official selections in film festivals, including 15 Academy-Award qualifying film festivals. I was the recipient of the WA Young Achiever Award 2018 and was one of three finalists for Young Australian of the Year (WA) in 2019. 

I was also one of three nominees for Best Short Animation at the 2018 AACTA Awards - the most prestigious awards ceremony for the Australian film and television industry.

I love travelling and am very grateful to have been able to visit a multitude of places around the world through my filmmaking work. I stayed in the U.S. for three months, undertaking a 10-week internship at Nokia Bell Labs in New Jersey. A travelling highlight was when I won an exclusive three-day behind-the-scenes tour of Pixar Animation Studios.

My creative works have been used as an educational tool in secondary and tertiary institutions around the world, which I am really delighted about. I love that I am able to give back to the community through doing something I love, and I hope that my works inspire other young people to express their creativity and tell meaningful stories.
