Although I am originally from and currently based in NYC, I've also lived in various cities -- Orizaba (Mexico), Jakarta, Tokyo, Jeddah, Hong Kong, and Shenzhen -- for a bit over four years.
Indeed, language study is one of my hobbies, and a pivotal reason for this is to decipher menus. Fluent Eater, that title fits me to a tee.
Since 2020, I have been authoring a quirky travel site called noworkandalltravel.wordpress.com, and since last year, a culinary travel site called findingfoodfluency.com; FindingFoodFluency video offshoot can be found here: www.youtube.com/channel/UC-4mIJ9aFl1v-Vm_HeCSVdA.

I am also open to freelance and/or full-time opportunities, and can give travel lessons in Spanish, Indonesian, Chinese, and Japanese.
