(Newsletter graphics by Kimi Nguyen)
PAPER TRAIL is a personal newsletter born during quarantine. I made it to archive my scrappier and less polished writing. In each issue, you can expect a stream of consciousness, a few new essays, a visual interview with friends, and cool links I enjoyed.
Why subscribe? If you love Anderson .Paak, dig the editing style of short op-ed documentaries, or are into layered essays on identity, culture, design, heritage, tech, or marketing — I’ll likely have some posts for you.
What's in every issue?
Personal Memo / As a personal newsletter, you'll obviously be greeted first with a memo from me talking about whatever is on my mind at the time of writing.
New Words / Any new essays or commentary on identity, culture, design, heritage, tech, or modern work — I’ll likely have 2~3 posts per newsletter.
In the Oven / What makes each of us feel like our best selves? What habits, mantras, or memories help us get to each of our own golden hours? This section is where I feature conversations with friends.
Turntable / Whether it's great music or articles, I'll share a list of recommendations I've saved. As someone who geeks out about specifics, I can't guarantee anything about the quality here.
