About Me

I’m a writer, reporter, and video correspondent focusing on global urban culture. My areas of expertise are China, Africa, and food of all stripes.

After four years as a features reporter at the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong, I moved to New York City where I covered politics for New York Magazine when not writing about food and booze. Now, I’m in Los Angeles where I spend my time investigating the cuisine of the area’s underreported immigrant communities and producing a podcast about food and eating through the ages, Devouring Time.
