Born in Los Angeles but raised in Taipei, Taiwan, Cali has already worked on various TV series, commercials and short films in Taiwan, before she was honored to receive the John Nordstrom Scholarship, and moved back to Los Angeles to attend USC Thornton's Masters of Music program in Screen Scoring. Owing to her unique background, Cali's compositions cover a variety of genres, from orchestral scores to industrial/electronic sound design, to hybrid composition. She is passionate to explore the creative possibilities of media composition, and keeps expanding her horizons as a part of the exciting film industry here in Los Angeles.
She is currently working on various film projects in Los Angeles, as well as assisting a number of working composers. Her recent credits include but are not limited to Cake Bomb (2021), starring Renate Reinsve, directed by Alexi Tan, and Apple TV's HOME (2022), co-composed with Aska Matsumiya.
