Welcome to my blog! As a journalist, I write about a lot of different topics: culture, food, art, Japanese-American life, health, my West Village neighborhood in New York City, and eating disorders. It’s hard to fit them all under one umbrella, but that’s what I love about my job: it gets me out and about, walking and talking to people whose lives and work are very different from mine.
This blog is a place for me to share information that doesn’t make it into my articles, projects I’m working on now, places I’ve visited and people I’ve met. The only topic from the list above that I’m not including in this blog is eating disorders. To read my posts on that subject, check out this blog on the book website that Dr. Marcia Herrin and I share. Please post any comments that come to mind; I would like to hear from you.
