Hi there! I am a Thai-American “third culture kid” born and raised in California, currently living in Bangkok, Thailand with my wife and three young children. Though I spend most of my time being a husband, father, and college minister, I love writing poetry on the side.
I am grateful to have poems published (or forthcoming) in Commonweal Magazine, Ekstasis Magazine, Faithfully Magazine, Fathom Mag, Firewords Magazine, First Things, Inheritance Magazine, Poems for Ephesians, Poets Reading the News, Visible Poetry Project, What Rough Beast, and several Medium publications, including Chalkboard, The Coffeelicious, Intimately Intricate, Lit Up, Poetry in Form, Poets Unlimited, P.S. I Love You, Publishous, Resistance Poetry, and The Scene & Heard.
Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to read my words, write back, and provide a wonderful writing community here on Medium.
If you’re new to my poetry, these three poems will give you a good idea of what I write:
