An Interview with Model Turned Entrepreneurial Maven, Misa Chien

By Privy Editor

 

 

Occupation: Entrepreneur, Former Model

Based in: San Francisco

Last Education: University of California, Los Angeles


It started with a bánh mì sandwich.

Like any good entrepreneur, Misa Chien, the former co-owner of Nom Nom Truck, which specializes in those pork and picked veggie baguette sandwiches, would frequently check online reviews for her business. But when Chien couldn’t match the feedback—positive or negative—to her employees, she wondered why anyone hadn’t designed a way for patrons to leave employee-specific reviews. So with the former model’s customary pluck, she did it herself.

Jenny Wu: A Good, Bad, & Fab Woman

By Privy Concierge

Gallery All

Jenny Wu is a force to be reckoned with. So much, in fact, that the Privy member, fashion lawyer and blogger of good, bad, & fab  was eyed by CBS and subsequently cast on The Amazing Race. This season, The Amazing Race has put a hefty spin on the usual partner dynamic that so many of its viewers identify with today: each contestant on the show is set up with a random partner of the opposite gender. The gorgeous and intelligent fashionista flexed some serious muscle this season by roughing it out in different challenges and navigating difficult communication with her teammate.

We had the privilege of interviewing this good, bad, and fab woman about her life leading up to this monumental moment on national television, her thoughts on love and dating, and what she’s up to next:

Gallery ALL: An Artistic Fusion of East Meets West

By Privy Editor

Gallery All

Gallery ALL isn’t your typical art gallery. East meets West in a unique art setting, and with one location in Los Angeles and a second in Beijing, Gallery ALL introduces Chinese and international artists to a steady stream of curators, artists and designers through special events that highlight art and design. The founders of Gallery ALL personally select and showcase the talents of Chinese art both in Beijing and abroad, and recently held an event featuring designs by Naihan Li and Zhoujie Zhang.

We recently had the opportunity to chat with two of the creative minds behind Gallery ALL: Co-Founder Yu Wang, an architect/designer and real estate developer (who founded the gallery with business partner Qingyun Ma, an internationally renowned architect and Dean at the USC School of Architecture), as well as Xiao Lu, the gallery's Managing Partner who is an expert in international PR and marketing. Yu Wang and Xiao Lu took time out from jet-setting between the LA and Beijing spaces to talk with Privy about their inspiration, recent events, artists, and the difference between the L.A. and Beijing art scenes.
