I’ve always enjoyed cooking at home, but when the pandemic spread and the city began to shut down, homemade meals felt more necessary. Boy, was I ever glad that I knew how to cook.

Society of Professional Journalists award
This news is coming a little late, but I guess late is better than never. Earlier this summer, I won a Society of Professional Journalists award for a Salt Lake magazine piece I did last year. I took home the second place prize in the Best Magazine Writing category for my story documenting Chinese diasporaContinue reading “Society of Professional Journalists award”
The great Chinese American road trip
As promised, here’s a link to my article in Salt Lake Magazine. Let me know what you think.
Chinese Americana: Prologue
If you asked me what I was working on last year, chances are I talked about how I was driving to small Utah towns searching for Chinese restaurants. I spent hundreds of miles on the road and the project took me months to complete. I didn’t really know what I would find or how IContinue reading “Chinese Americana: Prologue”
Leftovers | Handle
A couple of months ago, I posted a photo of an interior shot of Handle in Park City, Utah, which was featured in Utah Style & Design. But I think some of the food pics and portraits that I shot turned out pretty well, too.

Leftovers | Publik Coffee Roasters
The Utah Review published a pictorial I did about Publik Coffee a few weeks ago. Here’s another look at the place with some alternates from that photo shoot.
The Copper Onion photo sessions
As I mentioned in my previous post, I worked on a story where I tried to trace the people and restaurants that are responsible for shaping the Salt Lake City dining scene the way it is today. No such story would be complete without Ryan Lowder and The Copper Onion. Lowder spent a stint at theContinue reading “The Copper Onion photo sessions”
Forage photo session
Back in December, I talked to an editor at LA Times about putting together a feature on the dining scene in Salt Lake City. She gave me the go ahead but specified that I had to work on spec (i.e., do it without a guarantee of being published). Fair enough, I thought. I conducted halfContinue reading “Forage photo session”
