The Team

 


Ada Tseng

Creator

When Ada was a little girl, she dreamed of being a journalist that would have all her writing overshadowed by hot photos of shirtless Asian American men. As an adult, she has seen considerable empirical evidence on Twitter—from fire emojis to OMG reaction gifs—that shows that these Haiku Hotties do make the world a happier place.

 

 

 


Mai Nguyen

Co-Producer

When Ada first shared her idea for Haikus With Hotties in 2013, Mai knew it would be amazing. Mai helped with promoting the calendar when it first debuted in 2016 and joined as a co-producer in 2017. Sharing hot Asian men with the world is one of her greatest life purposes, so she’s not sure how she lived up until 2016.

 

 

 


Amanda Lui

Designer

When Mai asked Amanda to join her on a “fun project,” Amanda took a leap of faith and accepted her proposition. Amanda was tasked with designing the Haikus On Hotties calendar, and later the Haikus With Hotties website, which comes with the privilege of having to look at photos of hot Asian men for countless hours. She hopes that you too, can enjoy this luxury.
