Hi, I’m Kathy Cheng, a writer based in Taipei. I started Tricky Taipei to introduce Taiwanese design, food, lifestyle and travel stories to a global, English-reading audience.
I’m also the founder of Thankful Registry, an open-platform online gift registry that launched in 2013. It’s been covered by TechCrunch, Fast Company, Dwell, Lucky, New York Magazine (Weddings Issue) and The Billfold.
In my previous career, I was a copywriter and content strategist. I worked at Smart Design in NYC and VSA Partners in Chicago. You’re welcome to poke around my out-of-date professional website: kathywcheng.com.
From time to time, I take brand and design consulting projects with Taiwanese businesses. If you’d like to work together please get in touch.

Whenever this is the case, I mention this at the bottom of the post. In regards to images on Tricky Taipei, all photos are taken by me unless a photo credit says otherwise.
