journalism

Prior to graduate school, I worked professionally in ethnic and arts journalism. From 2002 – 2007, I worked as a journalist with Asian American media publications Yolk Magazine and ChopBlock.com. In my position, I interviewed Asian American actors and musicians and reviewed Asian American centered entertainment. Additionally, I worked as the West Coast Web Editor for the national actors trade magazine Back Stage. During my directorship, the publication won VNU Best Website, beating out sister publications such as The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard. During graduate school, I worked extensively in Bay Area community non-profit media organizations including working in production at Berkeley Community Media, and as the Communications Associate for the non-profit Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project. I continue to write for popular publications.
