  • Background

    I write to understand the world, especially in creative nonfiction and fiction. I have written essays on travel and food. I dabble in memoir and short stories. I am working on a novel based on real events. My experiences have ranged from being in the crowd during the June 2013 Istanbul protests to staying overnight in rural Ohio to visit a dairy plant. As an Asian American designer, I bring an unique perspective on what delights readers. I am always looking for more opportunities to share my experiences. Contact me if you're interested.
