While living and working in Beijing from 2014-2015, I wrote a number of essays and exhibition reviews for LEAP / 艺术节, China's bilingual contemporary art magazine (where I was employed as an editor), and The Art Newspaper China (see below).
Though I took a break from more public-facing writing while in graduate school, I'm now in the process of returning to it. In addition to art and technology, I like to write about food, identity, and culture. Currently, I'm working on an essay which explores the Jewish-American tradition of eating Chinese food on Christmas through my own experience as a mixed-race woman of Han Chinese and Ashkenazi Jewish descent.
