I’m a freelance writer and journalist in Chicago.
I write about art, culture, urban development, history, politics, and activism in Chicago and beyond. My writing has appeared in publications like Chicago Magazine, Chicago Reader, Block Club Chicago, Chicago Review of Books, and South Side Weekly.
I'm a Contributing Culture Critic with Chicago Magazine and a Fiction Editor at Arcturus, an online literary magazine and sister publication to the Chicago Review of Books that publishes new perspectives in fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry.
I was born in China and raised in Orlando, Florida. I graduated from the University of Central Florida and have been living in Chicago and complaining about the weather ever since.
