Hi. I’m Jenevieve. Welcome to my world.

I’m an actor, writer, movement director and recovering showgirl.

I was born in Taiwan, attended my first school in the USA, hit puberty in Australia and danced in the UK. 50 years after my grandparents ran away from China, I returned to Shanghai and became part of the country’s first Vaudeville, Variety and Burlesque club.

The Good Girl of Chinatown is a memoir of the life I’ve lived, the lives I’ve performed, and the lives that came before mine.
