These billboards dropped Summer of 2016 all over Brooklyn, but I never got around to "blogging" about it here until now. Super honored to be selected as one of the creative hustlers in this campaign that focuses on entrepreneurs and trailblazers.
I was recently invited to join the illustrious crew of 2 Dope Boys & A Podcast, where we discuss culture, politics, and marketing strategies. I hop in the studio about once a month with the show's hosts, Philip Mckenzie and Michael Brooks. Here's the most recent episode, where we discuss center politics within Hillary's campaign, Moncler's brand fuck-up, the dating economy and normalization of prostitution. Take a listen and let me know what you think :)
Phil Yu from the illustrious AngryAsianMan.com asked me to write a guest post, so I wrote about my mom & her foray into YouTube stardom.
It's titled, "5 Things I learned Watching Watching My Mom's YouTube Cooking Show" and you can read it here.
I'm flying to Seattle today to begin filming my new documentary. Watch the video above to find out what I'm up to ;)

The good folks over at Imprint Culture Lab asked me 8 questions I haven't answered in a while. In this in-depth interview, I discuss my upcoming international documentary, a typical day of my life, where I find inspiration, some challenges, and my next dream project.
I'm 1 of 2 guests this week on the radio show, Food Talk with Mike Colameco. I had a blast chatting with Mike -- he's a great host! We discuss how I became involved with my restaurant Lucy's Vietnamese Kitchen, why pho is the best noodle soup in the world, and my upcoming project with NBC News which I publicly announced here for the first time! :)
I had a great conversation with Michael Brooks and Philip Mackenzie of 2 Dope Boys & A Podcast. We talked about everything from the creative process, growing up in Boston, my immigrant parents, pursuing dreams, and realizing how my parents might live vicariously through me since they risked everything to give me the opportunities they never had. Enjoy!
Honored to be the Keynote Speaker for New York University's APIDA Commencement 2016. Here's a video of my 12 minute speech (missing a tiny clip but I tried my best to fix it!). In my address, I talked about the importance of knowing yourself and personal values in the path for success.
It's been 1 year since I launched Season 2 of Maker's Lane. Now, I'm back with some exciting new projects to share! Click above to learn more :)
