I am a black, malaysian, and gay american writer from Worcester, Massachusetts.

I write about ghosts, monsters, and the catastrophic failure of systems that are supposed to keep people safe. My essays have appeared most recently in Black Warrior ReviewAlpinist, and Bay Nature magazines, and my speculative fiction is forthcoming or appearing in Lightspeed, ClarkesworldFIYAHNightmare, and other fantastic/al magazines. My work has received notable mentions in Best American Essays and Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy, and the runner-up award from the Black Warrior Review nonfiction contest. 

I am a Tin House Scholar and a graduate of the VONA and Viable Paradise workshops. I have a B.A. from Harvard College, and studied law at Stanford Law School, after which I worked on radical criminal policy change in California. I am currently at work on a collection of short stories and a novel.
