I am an American multimedia journalist.


I’m currently a senior reporter at Goldthread — a digital imprint of the South China Morning Post. I produce videos and articles about food, culture, and identity in the greater China area.  

Previously, I was a full-time nomadic freelance writer. My stories appeared on VICE, NPR, Bon Appétit, National Geographic, Eater,  Los Angeles Times, BBC, CNN, CBS Los Angeles, First We Feast, Food Network, Saveur, Serious Eats,  Food 52, USA Today, and others.

I am interested in regenerative agroforestry and traditional ecological knowledge. I got my Permaculture Design Certificate in 2017 and spent six weeks on a farm in the jungle of Costa Rica living off-the-grid, practicing what I preach. I was once a volcano hiking guide in Nicaragua; I am also a certified California Naturalist.
