I'm Phoenix and I'm a first generation Taiwanese-American who grew up dual-everything. Dual-culture, dual-cities, dual-ideals, you name it. The world is my strawberry-kiwi drink. I hail from Irvine, CA though I've also lived across the way in Tustin and I spent my university years in Los Angeles (fight on, Trojans!) as well as four chilly months in France. I love to travel but I also love kicking it back on my own turf. I love a good concert at the House of Blues but I also enjoy the tranquility of the MOCA. I'm quiet until you put a karaoke mic in my hand...while I'm sober. It may seem kind of strange but it's two sides of the same Phoenix to me.
Just as my handle invokes the image of a bird springing back to life from the ashes, I strive to share things with people in a new light and with a twist. I'm here to show you both the grand things and the small things this wonderful area has to offer.
For immediate release: Art is not dead and that there's more places to eat at than just the fast food joint with its seductive neon signs. See inside for more details.
