I'm a New York-born, Hong Kong-raised Filipino with a degree in Chinese Literature from Reed College. I still don't quite get it either.

Before I jumped into radio, I was a Dean's Fellow at Yale-NUS College, where I helped build community at Singapore's first liberal arts college.

Since then, I've produced radio for KBOO, XRAY.FM, Portland Radio Project, and OPB. I currently produce Racist Sandwich, a podcast that explores the intersections between food, race, class, and gender. In 2015, I was an AIR New Voices scholar and attended a radio conference for zero dollars. Well, almost zero.

Also, it's Monte-SEAL-yoh.
