Where am I?

I’m Piia Mustamäki, an academic wanderluster, a Finn, and a New Yorker, currently based in Abu Dhabi where I teach at NYU Abu Dhabi’s writing program.  I’ve visited 92 countries and lived in 6. These are my essays:  blog posts, some longer essays, some just anecdotes and some a bit experimental.  Most are about traveling. There are 1001 worlds out there to learn from and to explore.

I’m honored to have my essay “A Rich Life” in this stellar collection of poetry, fiction and essays. Though not necessarily about travel, the collection takes you around Asia Pacific in 37 different voices and locations.
