Me: A civic-minded, but cynical, American lawyer. Since 2005 I have had the good fortune to live in Zhuhai, China; Cambridge, UK; Hong Kong; Utrecht, Netherlands and Hong Kong again. In 2017 I returned to Seattle.
Before moving overseas, I worked for a good-hearted international NGO, Landesa, based in Seattle and spent a decade traveling to India, Rwanda, Angola, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, China and Mexico.
I have been a columnists for the expat-support magazine, Global Connection. My work has also appeared in Imprint 13, Imprint 15, and Imprint 16 anthologies by the Hong Kong Women in Publishing Society.
Awards and recognition! I’m pleased to have been “Freshly Pressed” by WordPress and to be “highly recommended” by the very cool Hong Kong Blogs Review. One of my very popular Hong Kong posts, Hong Kong Warning Icons, was picked up by the Hong Kong Free Press. I have also given several community blogging awards. Have a peek here for the details.
The comics and other graphics: I use Strip Generator to make my comic strips. It’s pretty “drag and drop”-dead easy, although infuriatingly, you can’t edit after the fact. For most of my other visual parodies, mocked-up photographs and graphics, I simply use Google Document’s Drawing feature.
