Trying my best to showcase the work I've been doing, but my LinkedIn profile is probably the most up-to-date.

oh and....

hi, i'm Jacky Tran. you may only meet one of us in your life, but you'll encounter many of us online. aren't we a smiley bunch? if you know another one of us, please don't hesitate to introduce me :)

i do many other things--making my own website look pretty is not one of them.

here's what i've done for other people though:

and i'm also not afraid to teeter on the fringes of the law for a good production or adventure...here are some highlights:

i'm known to keep myself well-traveled, well-fed, and socially stimulated. i also like sharing tips on how to do that--on other people's publications (don't hold your breath for a Waxyjax travel/food p0rn blog). check out my writeups on travel and music site Cliktrips for Paris and Krakow. if you're looking for Paris tips from 2006 they can be found in a handful of listings in the Paris Section of the BlackBook List: Jet Set Edition 2007 The Best of Europe . I've also been dubbed a "Rehabilitation Specialist" for people who've given up on using sites like Yelp by my favorite food blog SeriousEats.

i've even dabbled in music. check out "The Ceasing Now" by Parts & Labor. the band selected samples submitted by their friends (or in my case, friends of friends) and a recording of me clipping my fingernails happened to make the cut (i just noticed the pun and i'm not gonna do anything about it). here's NPR's story on the album and sample concept behind it. my speaking voice has appeared on other tracks by other artists, but i don't like hearing myself speak and will therefore not share any further details here--sorry!

...i feel closer to you already.
keep in touch
