I make things out of words and pictures.

On Cranial Gunk I write reviews and make commentary about books, movies, music, and pop culture. I have been a regular contributor to Rice Daddies, an Asian American fatherhood blog, and have had essays and poetry published in the Asian American Literary Review’s Local/Express anthology and Nuyorasian, an anthology of New York Asian American writers.

Please note, if a book review has “Goodreads” in the title it means I wanted to say more but didn’t at the time, so I just made “notes” to help me remember. The “Goodreads” notes are on the Goodreads website.

Unless otherwise noted, all the writing, photography, and creative work on Cranial Gunk are my original copyrighted work.
