BETTER CHRIS TRAN

Hopefully we can improve together

We are all told, “live your life to the fullest”; I am here to do just that. Better Chris Tran serves as a vessel to project my passions, and clue in my readers as to what inspires me in this crazy world. So, sit back, relax, and read on.

Unashamedly, I hope to improve my writing skills and increase my network of interesting people.
