Hey, I'm Tenzin!

Olympia, Washington

Hello! My name is Tenzin, most Tibetans call me Mingyur though because there are so many Tenzins around. You can call me Tenzin, like my parents do.


I immigrated to the United States in 1989 and grew up in Colorado and Washington State. In 2021 I received my PhD in Rhetoric at the University of California, Berkeley, under the advisement of Trinh T. Minh-ha.


I began my undergraduate studies at Seattle Central Community College, and received my BA from The Evergreen State College in 2008. I was introduced to filmmaking in 2003 through Reel Grrls.
