I write about food, travel, technology, and the environment, among other things, and am an author of Lonely Planet's travel guides to California, Northern California, Discover California, China, Tibet, Southwest China, and Discover China. I also write Lonely Planet books on how to eat, drink, backpack, swim, climb, and otherwise explore your way around the world.
I counter my unfortunately appalling sense of direction with a true love for adventure.
Places to eat and people to meet
San Francisco, Shanghai, and wherever there's something good to eat
