I was told once that lawyers are just frustrated writers.
I’m a writer, attorney, and dad. I attended Voices of our Nation (VONA) in 2020 where I was mentored by the amazing Tananarive Due. I am a proud Codexian. I have had the fortune of sharing space with Matt Ortile, Neelanjana Banerjee, D’Lo, and Sehba Sarwar in writing workshops and other generative sites.
Much of my writing is speculative, though not all. My work has appeared in Stupefying Stories, a STEAM multi-issue zine collaboration with NExSci, in The Aerogram, and in the Asian Pacific American Law Journal.
As an attorney, I help lead the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center, a groundbreaking organization that provides free immigration legal services to University of California students and their family members. Prior to this, I clerked for a federal judge and worked at NILC engaging in impact litigation.
I recently started a newsletter exploring masculinity and vulnerability. Subscribe here.
When not writing or working, I explore the wonders of the world with my partner and two kids.
