Brief biography:

I completed my Ph.D. in American Civilization at Brown University in 2004. Previously, I earned a M.A. in Urban Planning from UCLA in 1993 and double majored in Mathematics, and Modern Society and Social Thought from UC Santa Cruz in 1988. In addition to my formal education, I have worked with and learned a great deal from community-based organizations such as Asian Pacific AIDS Intervention Team that provides HIV/AIDS services to Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Currently, I am working with Fil-Am Arts, a community-based cultural production organization in Los Angeles County, and Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance, a multi-service organization in Orange County.
