About me: Creative writer. Thoughtful observer. Resourceful journalist. Lover of a good story. Gulf Coaster. Fan of road trips and international wandering, Texas state parks and good food. Grew up in Alabama with Taiwanese roots. Can’t stand the question “Where are you really from?”
Bio: I’m an experienced business journalist who reports on the U.S. oil industry for top energy news wire Argus Media, where I cover news for an expert audience. Previously I led the green energy web vertical and investment coverage for VentureBeat and reported from China, Laos, Taiwan and Hong Kong for The Wall Street Journal. My work has also appeared in the Houston Chronicle, aired on North Texas Public Radio (KERA 90.1) and on the front pages of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Miami Herald.
My work ranges from chasing deepwater platform fires to tackling big features on the American energy boom and its aftermath. I’ve also reported on a speculative boom in the price of tea leaves in China and golf course brawls in Houston. A recent favorite: visiting oil caverns deep beneath sugar cane fields in Louisiana, washed down over the weekend with beignets and grilled oysters.
