I'm a mom of 3, and a proud American raised Filipina married to a Chinese-American living in the beautiful city of Chicago.
I am the editor of Chicagonista and the creator of City Connect Media, Inc. (CCMI) that owns and operates Chicagonista.com and other city sites including TheChicagoMoms.com. Under CCMI I created Chicagonista LIVE!, the first live-streamed online talk show in Chicago, with co-host and broadcast journalist Nancy Loo and new media personalities Beth Rosen and Duong Sheahan.
Before writing, I once traveled extensively for the fashion industry and made rapport between major department stores and a New York based designer brand. When the kids came along I started writing about Chicago fashion and now turned Chicagonista.com digging out great places/events for “movers, shakers & baby makers.” My love in fashion and technology suddenly became one.
I was one of the panelists in Google’s “Mothers Know Tech” and since then has spoken in many other blogging conferences. I am also listed in the “75 Top Twitter Tips from Today’s Small Business Moms” found in American Express OPEN / Small Business website. I also instructed “Hands on Small Business” – Social Media class series with Microsoft Office Live and Kirtsy and you can even find her in the new book “Power Moms” – The New Rules for Engaging Mom Influencers Who Drive Brand Choice.
I also hosts the annual Brands & Bloggers Summit in Chicago attended by about 200 professional bloggers nationwide. Recently you can find me guesting in various tv segments on parenting, social media and technology.
