LAist only exists with your help.
Full transparency: Although we’ve experienced a huge growth in readership, not nearly enough of our readers have stepped up to support our non-profit model. Please take a moment right now during our spring member drive to keep LAist strong.

More Asian Americans live in L.A. County than any other county in the U.S. The communities are varied and complex and often invisible in the mainstream media.

I tell the stories of recent immigrants and families who have been here for generations to answer: How do you navigate the intersection of being Asian and American? And what impact does that have on L.A.'s future?

I grew up in Taiwan and Maryland and worked in public radio and newspapers in New England before joining KPCC/LAist in 2012. In my previous roles, I've covered housing and immigration.
