I am a Vietnamese-American illustrator and best friend currently based in Oakland, CA. I focus on color and shape to communicate. I love telling all kinds of stories, but especially ones about interpersonal relationships, science, and cultural history.

< I also like tactical rpgs, printmaking, cooking, and every kind of dumpling. >
