I feel like I need to re-introduce myself online. To give you an idea of where I'm coming from, I've written a couple lengthy essays about my food journey on Medium:
- "Culinary Autodidact," my door-in-face introduction to cooking at a young age.
- "Dirty Kitchens," a self-guided curriculum in the Philippines.
For those of you that only know me from the Randwiches Tumblr, I'll have you know that I practice many hobbies and juggle multiple careers. Plural, yes! CAREERS. Before I jumped head-first into my culinary adventures, I was a radio show host, an alternative periodicals librarian and student government employee in Davis, CA. When I moved to New York, I became a writer for a tv company and an electronic music promoter. Along the way, I've freelanced for music festivals, started a band, volunteered for food events and even interned at a cheese shop. Most recently, I worked on an app called Ultravisual. Just last week I started my new job at Flipboard as a community manager.
I'm one of those people who doesn't watch tv or has much "spare time." I pack every single moment with the things I love. My philosophy about cooking is very much akin to that of my view of the world. There isn't a recipe. There isn't just one way to do any one thing. I'm always learning and am allowed to be wrong or change my opinion. I hope that when you read my posts, you think that you can try it and find your own way to enjoy food.
My goal with this new blog is to pull together the threads of daily posts I've made on Tumblr into longer essays, galleries and guides. Don't fret, I'll still update the Tumblr with my adventures and inspiring sandwich gifs. You can also follow me on Instagram if you want to see what I'm working on.
Enough about me. Let's talk about food~ ! You must be hungry...
