Vinh Dao

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

I was born in Saigon, Vietnam in 1972 and emigrated to the United States at two years old. After arriving in Seattle, my family spent a few years wandering the United States until we ended up in Anaheim, California where we lived in the shadow of the Happiest Place on Earth. In 2003, I packed my bags and left Southern California to pursue my dreams of traveling around Southeast Asia and rediscovering my roots. After spending 10 years in Phnom Penh, Cambodia working as a professional photographer and writer, I'm now based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. where I am currently exploring options that leverage my experience as a photographer, writer and business owner and pivot to another exciting adventure.

In my free time, I enjoy dodging Ho Chi Minh traffic, obsess about the newest gadget on the block, blog about food for Vietnomnom along with Nyam Penh and shop for old camera gear.
