Hi, I'm Jackie! I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, and am currently living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Iā€™m a freelance writer and editor, exploring and creating everywhere I go.  I'm doing my best to make sense of this big, wide, wonderful world I'm fortunate enough to be a part of and trying to document it all along the way.

On this site, you'll find bits about my travels throughout Asia, my two-year experience living and working in Japan on the JET Program, and cultural idiosyncrasies viewed through my eyes.

Want to reach out or work together?

Unless otherwise stated, all writing and photos that appear on this site are my original work, and all opinions are my own.
