In 2018, I won a regional Emmy in Northern California for my documentary about San Francisco’s Chinatown, which was part of a series examining Chinese-American communities from the Mississippi Delta to the San Gabriel Valley (Los Angeles).
I’m part of the founding team of Goldthread, a digital publication from the South China Morning Post about culture in Greater China and beyond. I’ve put out video stories about the underground reggae scene of Shanghai, the original b-boy dance crew of Beijing, and China’s obsession with 666.
Before Goldthread, I spent three years at Al Jazeera’s digital channel, AJ+, as a creative and video producer. I’ve played key roles in launching and developing multilingual newsroom experiments since 2014, including Al Jazeera’s digital publications, AJ+ English, and AJ+ Espanol.
I’m from Brooklyn. If you want more intimate updates, sign up for my (kinda monthly) newsletter.
“This whole series kicks ass.” —Junot Diaz
“Chinese Food: An All-American Cuisine” is an award-winning documentary series published on Al Jazeera’s digital channel, AJ+. I pitched, produced, and hosted this series that explores three different Chinese communities in urban, suburban, and rural America.
