About Me

I'm a Thai-Scottish American writer born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I spent fifteen years working as a labor union organizer. I am now pursuing an MFA in Fiction from Pacific University, and reside in Oakland, California with my family.

I am also a volunteer with the VIDA Count, which conducts rigorous tallies of the gender breakdown in major literary publications and book reviews each year. This important data is critical to an accurate understanding of the state of gender diversity and representation in these publications.
