About Me

Hi there!

Thanks for stopping in for a cup of tea.

I’m Lani. I’m a DC native, a Welsh-Taiwanese American, a JMU grad (Go Dukes!), a green freak, a locavore, an animal lover and a travel addict. I recently left my job as a TV producer at DC’s ABC affiliate to pursue a freelance career filled with “what ifs” and unknowns. The only constant? Telling stories. The freedom has been exhilarating and I haven’t looked back!

This blog is a smorgasbord of all the things I care about: our planet, our food, our bodies and our worldviews. It’s just my cup of tea, and I hope it’s yours, too.

I’ve experimented with everything from homemade toothpaste to homegrown food. Sometimes my projects are successful; sometimes they’re a hot mess. But I always learn something new. Isn’t that what matters anyway?
