Welcome! I’m a Malaysian-American writer now in NYC. Like all of us, I am many things, besides my present vocation: amateur photographer, dancer, former NASA tech, mystic (no, there’s no conflict between the last two), former Silicon Valley housewife, UMD & Bennington College alumna, Kuala Lumpur girl (Indian-Malaysian), extreme cook, auntie-at-large in the Asian arts community in NYC…
I’ve lived and loved a lot of places, and call many different kinds of people friend. Being a first-generation expat, my heart, mind and work naturally turns to issues of immigration, family, identity, culture and place; how we are defined by, and in turn define, the societies we live in.
Each of us is a universe. This website is a portal to my internal universe, worth no more and no less than any other voice on the planet. Be welcome. Read the blog, leave a comment, check out the photos or the videography. Artists of any kind who feel resonance and are interested in collaborations, I am interested in hearing from you.
More prosaically, this website also contains information on my writing coaching/editing/IT communications consulting services, and photography sales.
