About Jessica

I'm a Taiwanese-American producer, writer, and actor. My work explores themes of identity, womanhood, and becoming an adult. I'm the founder of Lil Swimmers Productions, a Taipei-based film production company.

After working in Taiwan for the past six years, I've relocated to New York to pursue acting and screenwriting. My time abroad has given me incredible insight into the Taiwanese-American experience and telling American stories from a diverse perspective.

Unique traits: I speak English and Mandarin Chinese fluently. I also have 20 years of dance experience.
