She studied photography and illustration at California College of the Arts, the internet at Hyper Island, was inducted into W+K 12- a cult disguised as an experiment- with an emphasis on film, ideation, art direction and writing.

Azsa has exhibited works at the Pompidou in Paris, Art & Science gallery in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Portland, New York, Brazil as well as a neighborhood gay bar in Sydney. A book of her drawings, “Nature Study on Lonesome Island," was published in 2011.



Over the course of a decade, Azsa’s experience as an artist and filmmaker has taken her around the world. Some have described her work as “spellbinding, insanity inducing, mind-blowing, and gooey.”



As a Creative Director, she’s had the unfortunate honor of having her handwriting made into an internationally renowned font as well as the unique experience of having worked in four W+K offices globally. As a queer identified person of color, she strives to create films in the spirit of authenticity and experimentation.
