As a first generation Filipino-American, Chris values both cultural diversity, as well as taking part in a shared societal-cultural dynamic. "Do what you love" is a virtue Chris firmly believes in, as is to "find balance in all things". When he is not working on all the creative things he loves, Chris loves enjoying the creativity of others, whether it is food, a movie or music. 

Through his photos, Chris hopes to capture the full depth and meaning of the work of the artists featured in Chopsticks Alley.
