My story always begins in Asia. I'm from a place that is gentle like the wind but fierce in dreams and ambitions. From there, I mindlessly navigated the streets of LA before I lived with purpose in the MidWest.

The MidWest is a place that allows me to enjoy the space, the change of seasons, and the un-stressful commute of daily life. And, though the Winters can be mentally and physically brutal at times, my curiosity continues as I witness the opening and closing of each season.

This creative space is an interlocking of discovery - between food and community, the new and different, the eclectic, the old, the thriving markets and shops, and my own aspirations to be a functional cook. This space is a blend of my past, present, and the near and far future. Come join me!
