Hi. I am a Taiwanese American freelance journalist.

My debut cookbook, Made In Taiwan, is a celebration of the island nation that I call home. It was nominated for a 2023 James Beard Media Award for Best International Cookbook.

My writing has been published in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times, National Geographic, CNN, NPR, among others. I have field-produced videos for VICE News Tonight, 60 Minutes, Vox, and SBS Dateline. My work tends to occupy (but is not limited to) the intersections of food, politics, culture, and the environment.
