About Me

photo of author and owner of Meandering Melody

I was born and raised in California, and am proudly Chinese & Taiwanese by heritage. I'm a civil engineer by degree, a software engineer by day, and an introvert no matter the hour. The outdoors is my therapy and gets me out of my (very busy and noisy) head. I've been photographing my travels (big and small) since middle school, so you'll definitely notice a difference in photography and editing styles throughout my posts!

What's been keeping me occupied:

  • Unlearning my fear of heights through exposure therapy by climbing rocks and walls
  • Learning Spanish for an upcoming wedding
  • Reading The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. and Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner
