About Me


Hi there!

I am a food and events photographer and social media consultant based in the San Francisco, Bay Area. Originally from Minnesota, I came out to the Bay Area where I graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Human Biology. Several years out of college, I quickly realized that my heart and passion lied in photography.

I am a bi-ethnic (Hmong & Korean), queer, woman. I am a daughter of an immigrant father and a refugee mother; and these identities not only influence my work, but they affect how I see and interact with the world.

I view food as nourishment for the body, mind, and soul. Food is a source of power and of life, and it stands at the intersections of nearly everything our life touches. Accessibility, nutrition, money, immigration… thus, it can be used as a tool to forge strong connections and build bridges between uncommon denominators. Through my photography, I capitalize on this point of connection to become a storyteller; ensuring that a shared vision is well represented.

When I’m not shooting, I enjoy hanging out with my two cats (Jax and Yunie), practicing Muay Thai, and eating anything that comes from a potato!

I am also a Foodie Blogger! Check out my Instagram: @Radical.Eats
