Goldthread (South China Morning Post)

A multimedia publication that documents China

I co-founded Goldthread, a publication that covers culture, identity, and travel in China through video and other multimedia formats for a global, English-speaking audience. Incubated by the South China Morning Post.

  • As the project’s first hire, I crafted the editorial, creative, and social media strategy of the publication.

  • My reporting spanned mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

  • Besides producing and hosting videos, I trained and managed an editorial team that created platform-specific video content. I also gathered and worked with a global network video freelancers.

Chinese-American Video Series (AJ+)

Emmy Award-winning documentaries

I pitched, produced, and hosted Chinese Food: An All-American Cuisine, a three-part documentary series for AJ+ (Al Jazeera) that examines Chinese communities in urban, suburban, and rural America.

  • The episode on San Francisco’s Chinatown won a regional Emmy in Northern California in 2018.

  • The Mississippi Delta episode has over 10 million views on YouTube and Facebook and organically spurred a viral, productive reddit thread on race (it’s possible!).

  • This whole series kicks ass.” –Junot Diaz
