interview with The LA Review of Books

Colin Marshall of the LA Review of Books interviewed me for my book DELI IDEOLOGY which was released last Memorial Day. Find it HERE.

We discuss millennials, Al Pacino, the military duty in South Korea that men are subject to, Virginia Woolf, Korean literature in translation, jobs, careers, life, evolution, and a bunch of other ponderous questions we ask or don’t ask while drifting through life. It’s a good listen. Thanks for tuning in.

You can find my book HERE. Thanks for reading.

Feature documentary ‘A-Town Boyz’ Coming 2015

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been producing a film entitled A-Town Boyz for nearly 3 years now. It is a feature-length documentary about the sons of Asian immigrants growing up in Atlanta, Georgia. They recount stories of working-class upbringing, racism/bullying, identity conflicts, loneliness and gang life.

Here’s the trailer below:

The film is now in POST-PRODUCTION, and we are raising funds to cover costs of editing, sound mixing and music composition to bring a final cut to festivals across the nation and around the world.

Any help in spreading the word via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, Email, word-of-mouth, etc. would be so very much helpful & appreciated.
