Sai Versailles traverses the fields of art and multimedia journalism, engaging with the multitude of ways people understand culture, history, and politics.

As a multimedia journalist, her reporting investigates the sociopolitical dynamics of creativity, exploring the everyday lives of people and their communities. 

As a multi-genre selector under her pseudonym Versailles, her chameleonic approach to music is influenced by literature and cinema. Within the Manila club circuit, her sets shuffle through densely layered repetitions of a tough and swinging sound that nods to her cross-generational understanding of dance music.  

Versailles is a resident of Refuge Worldwide with her show ‘Master Selector,’ and is a volunteer in Manila Community Radio.

Sai Versailles holds an MPhil from the University of Oxford, and has participated in public discussions on art, culture, and creativity throughout Europe and Asia.
