Based out of Tacoma, Washington, I write, podcast, and produce video content professionally across the South Puget Sound area. I’m also a veteran of the U.S. Army, where I worked as a Chinese-Mandarin linguist for six years. I hold degrees in anthropology and Chinese-Mandarin language studies, as well as a certificate in storytelling and content strategy.
In addition, I’m an author and book reviewer. My debut poetry collection, Still Clutching Maps, was published in May 2017 under Blue Cactus Press. It explores ideas of language, power, and place as they inform a person’s constantly-evolving identity.
In my free time, I volunteer with Creative Colloquy, a local non-profit literary organization that promotes creative writing and community involvement in the South Sound.
