I’ve has been scribbling in journals and notebooks since first learning my ABC’s.  She writes about everything – features, profiles, arts and culture, current events, politics, religion and social trends – and has picked up photojournalism.

The diverse beats I cover include general assignment reporting. breaking news, religion, politics, immigration, arts & culture, food & drink, lifestyle, entertainment, ethnic/community news, Asian America, and features/profiles. I also cover events, shoot photography, interviews, research, administrative work, public relations/marketing, social media management, web-editing, blogging, editorial, copy-writing and editing.

My bylines have appeared in NBC News, LA Times, Asian Journal, LA Weekly, The Press-Enterprise, New America Media, Orange County Catholic, Angelus News, DisneyExaminer, and Inquirer.net.

I have B.A. in English, with an emphasis in writing and a certificate in journalism, from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA (c/o 2014). I hope to utilize my skills and experience as a creative writer in an upbeat, collaborative team environment.
