I’m a graduate of the University of Oregon and Harvard Divinity School, ordained in the Unitarian Universalist tradition. As a lover of organizing and community development, my ministry is to inspire collective action for social justice and educate on issues of leadership, racism, and radical hospitality.  In addition to my full time work with the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon, I do some itinerant preaching at First Unitarian Church of Portland, West Hills Fellowship and other local congregations, have a small spiritual direction practice, and volunteer chaplain to social justice efforts.

Previously I worked as the Inner City Outreach Worker for the Coalition for a Livable Future, Director of Campus Ministry and Field Organizing for the Unitarian Universalist Association serving congregations in Canada and America, Executive Director of the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods in Portland OR, and as Community Development Coordinator for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization based in Portland, OR.
