The lovely folks at the Seattle Globalist let me write an article for them about my experiences growing up trans-national, and how I came to realize my American-ness by how much American news I watched. It’s called How I figured out I’m American (with some help from Rachel Maddow).

I also drew a few illustrations for it, including the one above, where I show all the ways I describe Seattle to the people I meet here in Europe – no one ever knows that Jimi Hendrix was from Seattle and they always mention the movie.
