As for me, I’m Ligaya – raised in Kaua’i, schooled in Southern California by way of Virginia, I now call San Diego home.

More of my travel and food writing can be found around the web and in print including New York Magazine, Lonely Planet, Bon Appétit, Mic, Salt & Wind and more. Head to my Featured page to view recent bylines.
