As a Vietnamese-Canadian living in Europe, I am a writer of many voices. My work is influenced by authors like Italo Calvino, Hisham Matar, and Robin Wall Kimmerer. My goal is to bring a gentle understanding of people and places through keen observation, lived experience, and reflection. A contributing writer for Wallpaper* and Cereal magazine and editor of Faculty Department, my favourite stories to tell are that of inspiring individuals. I've covered the world of design and travel for publications, including Travel + Leisure and Openhouse. Among the notable residencies I've been involved with are Numeroventi in Florence and Norn in Barcelona, Berlin, and London. My previous work consists of stories for the Emmy Award-winning Life & Thyme, including articles on Copenhagen, Norway, and the Faroe Islands. When not studying the artworks in galleries and museums, I can be found swimming in the sea at low tide and horseback riding. My pronouns are she/her.
- Perception and Change"My original stay was meant to be a sweet and ephemeral two weeks. As flights back to London began to withdraw from the departures manifest, my time at Numeroventi stretched over months." Wrote about Florence artist residency Numeroventi for Openhouse magazine issue N°14 out now.
