Sai Versailles is a multimedia journalist, specializing in culture stories. Based in Manila, her reporting often investigates the sociopolitical dynamics of creativity, exploring the everyday lives of people and their communities. 

Under her DJ artist name Versailles, her radio shows are meticulous and referential, with club sets that shuffle through densely layered repetitions and piercing sound. Master Selector is Versailles' monthly show on Refuge Worldwide, taking her spectral library outside the club and inviting guests to share music for chilling.

She is the curator of Cultural Learnings, an archival project, newsletter, and radio show of cultural learnings to further your cultural learning. Once described as radiating “the fond specificity of a mixtape smothered in fingerprints,” Cultural Learnings has been broadcasting on Manila Community Radio since 2020, learning about culture through music, field recordings, sound bites, interviews, and more.

In July 2022, Sai joined the volunteer team of Manila Community Radio as a managing partner. She is also the co-founder of Bubble Gang, a DJ quartet and genre-agnostic club night.

Sai earned an MPhil in international development from the University of Oxford in 2019. As a public speaker, Sai has participated in lectures and panel discussions on issues of art, culture, and creativity throughout the UK and the Philippines.

Sai’s pronouns are she/her.
