I’m a seasoned writer, editor and social media manager with a strong background in journalism and marketing communications.
I’m the assistant editor for the Opinion section of the San Francisco Chronicle. I oversea production, edit opinion pieces and occasionally write columns.
I have been a lecturer in the journalism department at San Francisco State University, where I taught writing and editing.
I also helped to tell the story of the University of California’s public service mission as a writer and editor for the UC Office of the President and was a marketing communications writer for the San Francisco Chronicle.
My journalism background includes experience as editor-in-chief of Hyphen magazine, and I’ve been an editor, online producer and writer for such publications as the Chronicle (where I’m currently a part-time copy editor), Newsday, Bay Area News Group and the Associated Press. I am the author of news, feature and opinion articles published in the Chronicle, USA Today, Salon.com, Newsday and other outlets.
I hold a master’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley, Graduate School of Journalism. I’m a graduate of the Asian American Journalists Association’s Executive Leadership Program, the Poynter Institute’s Power of Diverse Voices Writing Workshop for Journalists of Color, the National Conference of Editorial Writers’ Minority Writers Seminar, the Bay Area Video Coalition’s TechSF digital marketing program and the Knight Digital Media Center Multimedia Training Program at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism.
