I write about Asian American communities in Southern California and beyond for the Los Angeles Times. 

I also covered California's economic inequity at the Sacramento Bee and sat through countless city council and school board meetings as a local reporter for the Orange County Register and the Lafayette (Ind.) Journal & Courier. 

A UCLA graduate working in a "dying" but vibrant field of print journalism. I get to be paid to talk with those who are more interesting than I am. What's not to love?

I am also an avid college football fan, as my Fall Saturdays are fully dedicated to watching football (Go Bruins!). I once had a 30-minute conversation in an Uber ride with a South Carolina fan on its infamous quarterback Stephen Garcia.

Also available to talk for hours about K-Pop.
