I am a thinker and a writer, a mom and a wife, an entrepreneur and a cook. The order of my roles changes depending on the day and the moment. Professionally, I spent about a decade as a journalist, mostly as a newspaper food writer, first for The Denver Post and then for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. In the summer of 2007, I left the newspaper business to explore my inner entrepreneur as the partner of a public relations/communications agency.
The "Chinese Soul Food" blog serves as a journal for me to share my stories about cooking Chinese meals at home and a record of my evolving recipes.
I have my fingers in many pies:
- I started a grassroots movement to localize Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution called JOFRSEA. Seattle Magazine named me "Best Role Model for Cooking with Kids."
- I published a magazine called Refrigerator Soup. There is only one issue so far.
- I am on the advisory board for the UW's Master of Communication in Digital Media department.
- I blog about parenting at Seattlemag.com.
