Based out of Tacoma, Washington, I write and produce multimedia content professionally across Washington state’s South Puget Sound. 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, book reviewer and small-press publisher. My debut poetry collection, Still Clutching Maps, was published in May 2017 under my publishing company, Blue Cactus Press. Still Clutching Maps 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 promoting creative writing and community involvement in the South Sound.
