I was born to two Vietnamese refugees who had fled their homes during the war. Naturally, Vietnam is a country whose imagery and traditions have had a big impact on my upbringing.

Vietnam is a sensory overload. The noise, the smells, the tastes and sights are incredible. The electric atmosphere of Saigon juxtaposes the lush, serene hillsides of Sa Pa. There is so much to see in this beautiful country.
