I'm an expat brat, addicted to traveling, various culinary pursuits, inhaling pop culture and world history, and creating content.

Hey buddies! *sits backward in chair* No m’ams here, just call me Elaine. Listen fam, it’s not really that long ago that I was just like you - I totes understand where you’re coming from. Totes Magotes. Ya see, I love sharing the ins and outs of my brain with my peeps and so, like, this thing here?

The D&D Character Sheet
The Friendly Blogger Bio
Hiya and welcome to elaine-is.xyz! I’m a lifelong expat kid that’s lived in New York, Washington D.C., Hong Kong, Singapore, Florence, London and a couple other towns besides. During my travels, I’ve had the luck to have made a living off of writing, including for Gizmodo.com and Shanghaiist.com.
Through that work, I’ve appeared in everything from New Yorker-quoted sources to Lonely Planet tv shows. It was a helluva ride!
And now that I am making my living off of other things too, I get to spend more time writing for fun. So that’s what this blog is about – me, writing for fun, with a nebulous focus on travel, food and pop culture.
