Hey, y'all!

At The Moth GrandSlam on July 24 at L.A.'s historic Regent Theatre, I was honored to share the stage with some of the best storytellers around as we told stories on the night's theme: Identity Crisis. Please check out the video of me performing Old Mr. Ma, the story of my grandma, me, and my search for her father's Chinese roots.

About The GrandSlam: These events always feature 10 storytellers who have won local StorySlams. Each tells a five-minute story to a live audience in a friendly competition for one of The Moth's greatest honors: GrandSlam Champ. On our night, 500-plus people listened to us share the most vulnerable, unusual, ridiculous moments we've spent seeking answers to the question: who am I? It was a thrilling night of people connecting through the power of story.

About The Moth: "The Moth's mission is to promote the art and craft of storytelling and to honor and celebrate the diversity and commonality of human experience." Put simply, The Moth is: true stories, told live, without notes. If you haven't yet, I recommend listening to The Moth Radio Hour or The Moth Podcast. Beware: it's addicting.

Thanks for supporting stories!
