I’m from New York, but spent most of my adolescent life elsewhere. Before you try and guess my ethnicity, I am Indonesian-American. I grew up an Anglophile after having a life-changing experience at a Coldplay concert aged 14. Thankfully, I grew out of the Coldplay phase but not out of the Anglophile phase. I escaped to the UK for a few years and have a BA in English Literature/Creative Writing and an MA in Journalism from Goldsmiths, University of London.

I now live in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

When I’m not writing, I’m usually playing guitar with my band or trying not to fall off my skateboard. I enjoy ’90s pop-culture memes.
