Aaron Veasna Mackenzie (called Laffeign in places where his first ever birthday gift doesn’t feel quite right) is a 17-year-old Cambodian American attending his senior year of high school in San Jose, California. He’s been making stories since he was in 3rd grade and has a passion for writing that he’s beginning to better understand as a means of understanding and connecting with the world.

He will always happily accept Pokémon cards as a gift, sincerely recommends you watch Dimension 20 if you have the time, and is definitely a cat person. He exists on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Tumblr, Reddit, Wattpad, and, of course, this website; if you see him anywhere else, including in person, it probably isn’t real.

Aaron is currently working on projects to expand his abilities in writing and storytelling. This website will be full of his practice efforts, basically a whole lot of works — or words — in progress.
