Welcome to my digital corner. I’m an anthropologist and narrative journalist who writes about culture, travel, tech and business.

This site is where you can find all of my published work. I am a regular contributor to Hawaii Business Magazine, AFAR and Matador Network, and am the author of Consumption in China: How China’s new consumer ideology is shaping the nation.

For more about me: I explore the intersections between anthropology and travel documentaries at Anthrolicious, and am the founder of Writing the Resistance, a socio-political writers’ community. To find out more about my work in design research, please visit lianneyu. To find out more about my work as a climate activist, please visit Studio Resilience.

Nowadays, I split my time between Hawai’i Island, my adopted home, and San Francisco,┬áthe place that raised me and shaped me. I have also left a big chunk of my vital organs in New Orleans.

I would love to hear from you.
