I will be performing on the main stage this Saturday and Sunday as part of the World Dance group from 2-4pm. I will fuse beatbox, dance and storytelling. It's going to be fun!

Global Dance Cafe 6 at Oceans 808 (in preparation for the 2010 PUJA Dance Concert: Love Letters on June 5th & 6th) was a lot of fun.... big ups to Willow Chang for inspiring me to utilize more of my "dance." My hat tips off to the late Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. They'r…
Two videos courtesy of Crispee Productions while I was at the 2009 International Secret Angeles Los Angeles (2009 ISA LA) Concert at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse produced by Wong Fu Productions and the Far East Movement.

Some new features that were not in the old site include blogs, unlimite…
