One thing that I really like to do is, I'll look in the mirror, and I'll imagine that I'm rapidly aging, until I'm just a skull.
The power of makeup is incredible, but the power of you is cray cray.
I still get very emotional when a girl - 13 or 14 - comes up to me and says, 'Your videos really helped me.'
I'm making 20 times more with Vessel for doing the same amount of work, if not less, than with YouTube.
I've always wanted to be in comedy... growing up with Asian parents and not seeing yourself represented in media - it was always just a daydream.
When our bodies are sick and people extend their sympathy, bring us soup, offer up solutions. When our minds are sick, people tend to shy away from you, be afraid, or call you outright crazy. I'm fascinated by the way society and individuals view mental illness, and most of my shorts comment on that.
The more you create, the more ambitious you become with your projects. Short films were a direct result of over 200 web series sketches and vlogs. After you create enough 2-minute videos, you start to wonder what else there is. Deadlines and discipline and quantity with a focus on quality have always been what keeps me going.
