Meet Me

Hello, hello! My name is Courtney Cheng, and I…

…am a full-time writer, reader, and baker; as well as a part-time cook, photographer, dancer, and musician.

At present, I serve as Project Manager of Digital Marketing at the Cal Alumni Association. Prior to this role, I worked as a Content Writer at Trancos, Inc. and freelanced for Confetti Kitchen.

I earned my B.A. in English, with a minor in music, from UC Berkeley. At Cal, I took several creative writing courses and in 2015, I served as the Editor-in-Chief of Spoon University at Berkeley, an online food publication. During my senior year, I wrote my honors thesis: “Romanticization and Reality: How Fan Engagement in Three Contemporary Adaptations of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice DumplingSpeaks to the Strength of Austen’s Legacy.”

On the rare occasions when I’m not writing, you’ll find me behind a book or a camera, or in the kitchen baking desserts or trying the newest recipe from the NY Times Cooking section.

Most nights, I’ll be sat in front of my computer writing short stories or blog posts, but on the off chance I’m not there, you’re likely to find me Latin dancing somewhere in the Bay Area.
