Honored, flattered, and humbled…

Big THANK YOU to Professor Grace Yoo, Lorraine Dong, Dan Gonzales, and all the Asian American Studies staff and faculty.
Thank you to my love Angel Mak and two supportive old friends from college, Kat General and Gabe Alegre.

My undergrad years with Asian American Studies set the foundation for all the things I do today.

I spent about an hour deciding whether to read out a speech I’ve typed up (for 4 days) or just winging it from memory…I went from memory. LOL.

BIG CONGRATULATIONS to the Class of 2016!

CAAMfest 2016

Very, very, very late Post:

CAAMFest 2016. So far – haven’t missed one yet!

OPENING NIGHT: TYRUS


Lot’s of familiar faces.


Glad that I was able to check out Pamela Tom’s film TYRUS. I’ve known her since my fellowship with Project:Involve many years ago. Congrats!!

MASTER OF NONE Panel (Alan Yang & Kelvin Yu)
My favorite comedy series this year.

A BRAVE NEW DIGITAL WORLD PANEL

Half panel, half catching up with friends. I wonder how many folks are entering the YOMYOMF contest?

A TALE OF THREE CITIES



Pretty cool to meet Director Mabel Cheung there. She’s an alumni of The University of Hong Kong (HKU) like Angel.

Today I got the chance to check out the Panel portion of the Black Comix Art Festival . Always great to hear artists talk about their craft and how they navigate around the business.


Brian McGee and Dawud Anyabwile

Nalo Hopkinson, Nnedi Okorafor, and Jewelle Gomez

Bought a Brotherman Graphic Novel.


Ayize Jama-Everett

Great day listening to these amazing folks.

I told myself that I’d be shooting more personal projects during 2016. 1st step is to get a new camera – the Dji Osmo.
I actually ordered this handle early November, but finally got it early January. My buddy Phillip sold me his used X3.

Keep an eye out for new projects every month.

VIZ Halloween 2015

Halloween is always pretty fun.

My Halloween Costume…recognize the character? I added my own little twist – it’s the “Dueling Warriors Hat”


(thanks for the side by side Jill)


My pumpkin entry! Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland.


A few of my co-workers


2nd place for the pumpkin carving contest!


Shout outs from the Director Peter Atencio of Key & Peele and a retweet from Jordan Peele. Made my day!

New York Comic Con 2015

The last big comic convention of the year (for me anyways)! Cosplay, Comics, Friends, and Family. NY is always a fun one. Thanks to all my friends and family who made time to meet up during my hectic schedule.

Great freaken cosplay! #Ironman #hulkbuster #NYCC2015

Allegiance The Musical

About 10 years ago, I was a camera operator for a PBS documentary called The Mighty Warriors of Comedy. It was about The 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors (an Asian American sketch comedy group) making their way through Hollywood.

Mighty Warriors of Comedy Excerpt (Documentary) from eignacio films on Vimeo.

Greg Watanabe was one of the guys I was hired to follow around with a camera. It’s been great following everyones careers and I’m really honored that I got the chance to check out Greg’s first Broadway show. Congrats man! Check out Allegiance The Musical when you can. I recommend it!

Greg Pak at SJ CAAMFEST

Late post, but I’d say this was one of the monthly highlights. Got to see Greg Pak talk about his latest work at San Jose CAAMFest 2015.


Got an issue of Superman Action Comics signed.


Also a poster of one of his newest projects coming up.

Nice guy! Always cool seeing indie AA filmmakers make big waves in american pop culture.

So inspired by my buddies Yogafrog, QBert, and DJ Hard Rich. Love seeing them doing big things! Big ups to the Thud Rumble family!
You could see a couple of Turntable TV Asia/Australia Tour footage from :21-:27. Ah, those were good times.

May to August Highlights

What can I say…IT’S BEEN A BLUR! Hopefully I’ll get better at updating this thing. Look for some new videos coming up (non-work related).
