LET'S GET PERSONAL
I was born in the 1980s, the fourth and final child of Khmer parents who settled in the United States under political asylum. A multilingual and multicultural upbringing forged a path I would traverse some thirty years later, where I would end up as a localization specialist on the west coast of Sweden - 5,000 miles away from home in a climate that is vastly different from the year-round sunshine of my childhood in Los Angeles.
LEAVING THE NEST
I left California for Stockholm in 2016 for the sake of love. When that dissolved a mere five months after my official move, what was supposed to be a one-year experiment in Gothenburg lasted several more years, punctuating my life with an additional passport and a career I've grown to love.
Besides designing with words, I enjoy cooking, baking, traveling (pandemic notwithstanding), reading, video games, yoga, and sleeping.
