I was born in 1983 in Alexandria, Virginia. My parents are Taiwanese. I grew up in Central Florida and have a B.A. in journalism from New York University. I've taught writing in Sarah Lawrence College's MFA program, and I'm the author of ten books (four novels, a memoir, a novella, a tweet-collection, a story-collection, two poetry-collections), as well as two ebooks, which can be read here. I edit Muumuu House and draw and am on Twitter and Instagram.
