On place

“I identify with being a student of nature—meaning it's important to me to have growth and freedom. That origin may have come from my immigrant parents who fled their lives in Vietnam to come to America. It inspires and motivates me to change and create experiences that open up a dialogue and to keep moving forward.”

On spiritual protection
“I have a profound connection to the Pacific Ocean from my childhood that has carried into my present life. It signifies clarity, power, and freedom and creates a sense of spiritual protection for me.”
