13: Travel, Food, & Sustainability w/ Clarissa Wei

Today I interview the adventurous spirit that is Clarissa Wei, a freelance journalist currently backpacking through Asia. Clarissa and I met years ago when she was writing about Chinese food in LA and I was working at the largest Asian food festival in the US. We collaborated on some fun videos like ‘How to Eat Xiao Long Bao‘ and ‘Dim Sum 101.'

It's inspiring to see how far she's come since then, from appearing on The Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern to speaking on panels with food critic Jonathan Gold to now living her dream life in Asia, hanging out with Tibetan monks and aboriginal tribes. Simply amazing. (Can you tell I'm a huge fan?)

Take a peek inside the current life of Clarissa Wei. She's a brilliant example of what it looks like to be a true artist of life.
