I left my marketing job on Wall Street to live the dream and become a food writer in San Francisco. And so, Lick My Spoon was born, a food blog for all things delicious—and all the passion, surprises, and indulgence that come with it.
My restaurant reviews and recipes have been featured in Bay Area Bites, Serious Eats, and Asian Week. When I write, I sometimes summon the creative spirit of Ruth Reichl, my inspiration for using taste memory to delight and move others. Other times, I will call upon Anthony Bourdain, when honesty and snarky brilliance is what’s needed.
Either way, the power of food – the memories associated with certain dishes, the back-stories, the history, the culture, the pure sensuality and joy of it – is what fascinates me and drives my desire to share it through the best way I know how. With words. (And vivid mouth-watering food photography whenever possible).
I've been known to choose my company based on how much they can pack it down. Ability to endure cramped quarters, sketchy back alleys, and uncharted paths to seek out that special dish is also a plus in my book.
