I write to understand the world.

If you asked me what I enjoyed doing at the age of 8, I would have answered “observing”. Like I do in design research, I explore storytelling through writing fiction and creative nonfiction. A frequent lover of food, I have traveled around the world to learn about ice cream and to write a book about it. I am currently working a novel based on my grandparents' lives in China, Peru, and the United States.
