I published 3 books about Japan pop culture with Random House and Penguin Books, and write regularly about travel for publications like Sunday Times, Business Insider, CNN, Yahoo, Movato (Canada-wide print lifestyle magazine), and Hong Kong Airlines' in-flight magazine. This year, I project managed 200 writers and wrote nearly 700 articles on contract for Touring Bird, a new travel site by Google Area 120.

I'm also a travel TV host, and appear regularly as an expert on Discovery, National Geographic, Food Network, Travel Channel and other major networks. Some of my top appearances include “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” in Tokyo, a “No Reservations” Anthony Bourdain promo, and ABC's “Better Late than Never’ with William Shatner and Henry Winkler.
