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 by either name.


I immigrated to the United States in 1989, and grew up in Colorado and Washington State. I'm currently a PhD candidate in the Rhetoric Department at the University of California, Berkeley, where I've been supported by such fellowships and awards as the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship, the Eugene Cota-Robles Fellowship, and the Dalai Lama Trust Scholarship. I received my BA from The Evergreen State College in 2008, and was introduced to filmmaking in 2003 through Reel Grrls.


I'm a transgender Tibetan man who is skilled at dreaming and long distance driving. Fourteen hours in one day is my best time.
