I’m a Thai-Vietnamese American poet and essayist. I’m the author of the poetry chapbooks, Em(body)ment of Wonder (Raine Publishing, 2021) and It Wasn’t a Dream (Fahmidan Publishing & Co., 2022). My writing appears in The Orange County Register, Button Poetry, Honey Literary, The Cincinnati Review, Rio Grande Review, and elsewhere. I’m a 2023 Kenyon Review alumn.
Artist Medium: Mixed Media; Paper
These days, I write mostly poetry, which explores culture and heritage, identity, aging, body image, mental health, language, memory, and relationships (especially familial ones) in relation to the diaspora BIPOC experience. I don’t have a particular medium I work with. If my poetry is printed for display, it’s on paper. I’m also interested in having my poetry displayed as sidewalk poetry or in art galleries, if ever given the opportunity.
