A daughter of Filipino immigrants, and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Angela often works in the ephemeral and impermanent, producing experiences often in collaboration with other artists, scientists, designers, farmers. Engaging with nightlife as an organizer and promoter, she's an advocate for marginalized groups. A Humanities degree graduate, Angela is a self-taught chef who trained and led world-renowned restaurants like Mission Chinese Food NY where she was Executive Chef, and with a position made uniquely for her practice, Creative Director for Food & Culture at The Standard Hotels International. She's a contributing writer to NY Times Cooking & Food, host of an experimental cooking show for NTS Radio, associate artist at Performance Space New York, and culinary advisor to the Lower East Side Girls Club.
She first teamed up with EVERYBODY.WORLD to realize her ideal swimsuit—a unisex-friendly four-piece set that featured hardware inspired by ‘90s silhouettes and BDSM choker rings. Now, she's dreamed to life the perfect Tool Roll; ideal for home cooks and professional chefs, and equally functional for spoon carvers, campers or drummers, to safely store and carry their essential equipment.
Like all EVERYBODY.WORLD contributors, Angela will receive 10% of the sales of her designs.
