An interview with Grace Jung on Warscapes, where I talk about how I'm a terrible person. 
We make snap judgments about others on a day-to-day basis whether we realize it or not. We do this partially because of our wiring for survival reasons, but our habit of presumptions based on what little we know of someone is a human folly. Forcing ourselves to reckon with another person’s multidimensionality is something that takes honest effort.

I animated a video for my upcoming book, Turning Japanese, which is my graphic memoir about being a twenty-something mixed race woman trying to connect with a culture that had eluded me in my youth. In this scene, atheist me comes face to face with the power of prayer at the Temple of the Goddess of Mercy.

My upcoming graphic memoir TURNING JAPANESE (2D Cloud, Sept. 2015) has been excerpted at the lit mag Okey-Panky. This bit is about the power of prayer as perceived by a devout atheist (me).
