I'm a writer and artist based in Brooklyn.

I'm a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, where I cover finance with a focus on the U.S. stock market, everyday investors and brokerages. Previously, I was a reporter at CNBC. I've also written about money, power, identity, culture and more for NBC News, INDY Week, Cleveland Scene and The Land. My work has won awards from the Asian American Journalists Association and the DeWitt Wallace Center for Media and Democracy.

I'm also a painter and teaching artist. I was a 2023 Create Change Fellow at The Laundromat Project and a member of the inaugural 2022 cohort of the Bandung Residency at Asian American Arts Alliance and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts. I was a 2022 LES Young Artists of Color Fellow at FABnyc, where I teach visual arts workshops for children and families.


I co-founded and co-administer Chinatown Photo Album, a community-sourced digital archive preserving family photographs and histories in Manhattan's Chinatown.

I graduated summa cum laude from Duke University. I was born and raised in Ohio. I'm shorter in real life.
