I'm a writer-filmmaker and recovering academic...and now I've launched a citizen media/civic engagement platform, K-12 News Network, for people who support public schools. (We were awarded a Ford Foundation grant to launch K12NN as part of an initiative to ensure diversity in digital journalism ventures.)
I've been active in Asian Pacific American issues and culture since college. My academic specializations were (not necessarily in order of importance): 19th and 20th century American literature, comparative multi-ethnic literature, APA literature and film, and women of color feminisms. I hold a PhD in English and an MA in creative writing from UC Berkeley. I've taught classes or guest-lectured at Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford, San Francisco State, RISD, UC Irvine, and UC Riverside.
