My Writing

I write essays on travel and food. I dabble in personal memoir. 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.
