Tuyen Chau

Founder of Broken Rice Media, Photographer, and Lifelong Learner

Hello and thank you for being here!

Hello! My name is Tuyền Châu (Tuyen Chau). Some of you may know me as Keli (or Kelly, pre-2014). Since a young age, I have always been interested in forms of self-expression—writing, music, photography, etc. Inspired by stories of my late paternal grandfather pursuing photojournalism in Vietnam during the 60s and my late eldest paternal uncle having been a cải lương singer, confirmation bias or not, I felt more connected as to why I felt I had to pick up a microphone and camera.

Growing up, we did not have much, so the luxurious karate or piano classes were out of the question. Eventually, I was able to work part-time and save up for a camera and that was when I started offering photography services which later branched out to design services. After graduating, I continued freelancing and worked full-time at small to mid-sized companies. In 2019, I had the opportunity to work at a franchise brokerage agency. Within 8 months, I helped implement structure, increased sales, and decreased costs in the marketing department that it eventually branched out to a new division. This experience made me realize that I enjoy building structures, teams, and plans for businesses with creativity at the root.

Currently, I am on a small business journey with Broken Rice Media LLC and business development. Outside of that, I find joy spending time with my family and three dogs while working on personal projects and mental/physical wellbeing.

Things could change. All I know is that everyone faces adversity and life is fickle so it is important to live each day intentionally and that means differently for each person. My hope is to share stories that will inspire others to learn self-expression and to find ways to give back to the community with the little time I have on this earth.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to browse around to find out more about our services. If you have questions, would like to request my resume or collaborate, drop a message and let’s grab (virtual) boba tea!
