Jean Trinh

Jean gets excited over a good life hack, especially when it comes to saving money. She’s the type of person who finds actually finds joy out of researching recipes that make use of all her leftover ingredients, and is keen on figuring out the most fun and interesting ways she can get exercise without paying gym membership fees. Since she’s also a frugal traveler, you’ll most likely catch her on vacations at a free museum or buzzy, cheap-eats joint as she soaks in the local culture.

Jean is a print and digital journalist whose work has appeared in VICE, Los Angeles Magazine, LA Weekly, Thrillist, GOOD and The Daily Beast. Previously, she was the Deputy Editor at LAist, and once landed the prestigious role as a judge for a bacon festival cook-off.
