They were born in Hong Kong from Korean parents, lived in South Korea, the Philippines, Canada, and the U.S. Growing up in different contexts has given them first-hand experiences in understanding the complexity of globalization, capitalism, colonialism, and how the macro affects the micro levels of human ontology and relationships. They are particularly interested in solidarity work amongst BIPOC (especially Queer and Trans) folks across borders. Their work in BUFU, a collective they are a co-founder of, has been covered by publications such as the Village Voice, NYLON, Hyperallergic, the Fader, and many more. For BUFU’s programming, they have worked with institutions such as the Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum, New Women Space, the New Museum, Abrons Art Center, and School for Poetic Computation.

They are a current artist in residence at Brooklyn Community Foundation Incubator Project and a past artist in residence at Eyebeam, New York.
