The History of Things to Come.

She’s known in Phnom Penh particularly for her music, composition, and stage presence along with her authentic, dress-up fabulous vintage pop-up sales she has been hosting for the past three years since she has lived in Cambodia, gorgeously titled “The History of Things to Come”, along with a compelling mind rich with knowledge on the projects she’s involved in. Amanda is passionate when the topic of vintage arises, as it truly is her lifeblood, an integral part of her personal history, and has been in a way methodically soothing to her in many ways which is apparent as she softly says in one part of our discussion, “I love the little details of vintage, the things that surprise you.
