Hi, I’m Alex! I like to make things—whether it’s websites, film festivals, or magazines. My work revolves around creativity as a way to enact change, connect communities, and actualize a better world. I enjoy writing about films, bridging together creative communities, and thinking about ways to prioritize process over product.

A publication and community focused on covering films from Asia and the Asian diaspora.
