Food tour director with strong experience in social media, content creation and public relations.

I believe the best way to travel in a new city is through eating your way around with a local, so I decided to launch my own food tour business in early 2016! Hong Kong Food Crawlers takes travellers out for culinary experiences in hidden corners in Hong Kong. I also love share the stories behind small food businesses on my blog Tastesmith.
