I am a long time Austinite (25 years to be exact). Honestly, it's more than half my life and all the while I painted what impressed me. Somewhere along the way, I started writing... Austin gave me the weird space to grow!
I co-founded AADI - Austin Arts and Drama Initiative - which brings movies, music and art to Austin. I got selected to be on the Community Advisory Board of KLRU, a local public television station, and I write for the Austin South-Asian, a local monthly newspaper. My freelance work has appeared frequently in the Austin-American Statesman and the Austin Chronicle.
I live with my husband and children in Austin, TX.
