Krysada Panusith Phounsiri lives in San Diego and also has a degree in Physics and Astrophysics and a minor in Creative Writing. He may very well be as close to the Lao Buckaroo Banzai as we're going to get with his generation. I've found his poetry engaging and intriguing and approaches the world with a boundless optimism that's refreshing.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more of his work in the future!
