Christina is an award-winning Asian American director based in Los Angeles and New York 

Raised a small peach from Birmingham, Alabama, she spent a lot of her childhood watching classic Americana and French New Wave cinema in hopes of belonging somewhere. As a result of this, at the age of seventeen, she directed her first musical featurette, 'How the Moon Fell From the Sky and No One Even Noticed'  inspired by those films. This film garnered international attention on twitter in ThailandShe was then chosen at nineteen, as a ’Semi-Finalist’ for MACRO (the studio behind Oscar nominated ‘Fences’) and The Black List’s episodic lab. 

A multifaceted director, Christina's work spans both the narrative and branded space, having grabbed the attention of clients such as Tinder, SnapchatCrayola and major music labels such as Atlantic Records, Warner Records and Sony Music.

Christina's films are saturated, youthful visions of surreal dreamscapes and nostalgic memories rooted from her background in theater and orchestra. Her work has been recognized by Paper Magazine, Billboard, the FADER, Refinery 29, TIDAL'S: Video of the Week, OUT Magazine, The Gay Times and screened at several Oscar-qualifying film festivals all over the world. She most recently won the award for Best Music Video at NFFTY in 2020 and in 2019

She has graduated from Art Center College of Design with a B.F.A in Directing and Film Production in 2020 and has also graduated high school in 2017 from the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy for Motion Picture Arts.

She strives to make Cassavetes for people of color. She also strives to keep her nose clean and to eat more veggies.
