We feel people are talking more and more about death and the options at the end of their lives and what they want their death to be, so it's a really important issue that is the topic of significant public discussion and debate." My latest for +KCET-TV Los Angeles

Disability rights advocates marched to the State Capitol earlier this week to urge lawmakers to increase the budget for community-based programs serving individuals with developmental disabilities. California currently has 21 regional centers assisting approx 280,000 people. But since the Great Recession in 2007, some of these services and programs have been drastically slashed or eliminated. http://bit.ly/1R44TBC   #KeepThePromise

Saurin Choksi, co-host of +Fuse's new late night pop culture show, "White Guy Talk Show," chats about comedy, crashing on couches, and catching his big break in the Big Apple. 

"I don't think that would have happened if I hadn't sort of made the leap of faith...where I'm going to quit my job and give it everything I've got."

My latest feature for +NBC News Asian America:

My latest for KCET: #AB80 would create one of the first interagency task forces in CA to improve outcomes for young boys and men of color.

"We must bring all the key agencies together and have a systematic discussion on what's preventing our men and women of color from thriving. AB 80 is the vehicle to make this happen," Assembly member Campos told KCET in an email.
In the wake of the Michael Brown and Ezell Ford shootings, California lawmakers are urging for the need to improve the futures of young boys and men of color.
