Jetset Times Inc.
Here at Jetset Times, our goal to inspire you to travel, see and touch the world. Get up and go, and do it without doubts and reservations. If you can’t leave just yet, we hope to share with you the wonders that travel can teach us, and help you journey vicariously through our content. Travel isn’t always a vacation; instead, it’s an all encompassing lesson, one that teaches us new ways to love, enjoy and embrace culture, and give. Founder Wendy Hung grew up with the family motto that “traveling is the best form of education,” and this rings ever so true here at Jetset Times. Launched in September of 2012, Jetset Times is based in San Francisco, California.
Meet the Team
Having an insatiable appetite for travel is only a minimum requirement at Jetset Times, and whether the team is scaling the Aspens or crossing Great Walls, it’s dedicated to bringing readers the best content and recommendations from around the globe. Say hello to Team JST:
Who She Is: Founder & CEO
Why We Love Her: Wendy calls three cities home: Taipei, Paris, and San Francisco. From producing television news programs in San Francisco, hosting a Mandarin radio show, and headlining a music label for several years (she was a part of the inception of Beats By Dre Headphones), Wendy has found her next phase of life in Jetset Times. As an avid traveler and speaker of five languages, she has lived in a variety of world cities, including Tokyo and Paris. The idea of Jetset Times was born from her belief that people can truly become better versions of themselves when they embrace worldly issues, cultures, and people outside of our communities. “At some point, we all need to step outside of our own bubbles and get to know all the kind and beautiful people around the world. The most reflective and introspective point of views come from these moments.”
Who She Is: Creative Director
Why We Love Her: Lena is the creative advisor for Jetset Times content direction, branding, and development. Having perfected the sassy one-liner, Lena loves trolling other blogs for inspiration and news, and creating partnerships with organizations that vibe with JST. Her love affair with travel comes down to meeting interesting people, and finding a way to make them laugh. Born and raised in Chicago, when she’s not face-deep in her laptop, she’s slingin’ a brew and sketching in her journal.
Desiree Constance Choy
Who She Is: Editor in Chief
Why We Love Her: As the queen of content and grammatical correctness, Desiree can be found churning out editorial, polishing headlines, concocting contests, and maintaining the vision and voice of Jetset Times. Speaking of voice, if there’s one thing she loves more than traveling, it’s singing—and lots of it. Leave it to this San Francisco native to tell you about the real, real world SF (none of the silly MTV stuff). Spanish may just be her favorite language of all.
Who She Is: Communications Associate
Why We Love Her: You can always find Taylor, JST’s resident aquatic enthusiast, with wet hair and wide eyes in search for the best beaches to visit. She loves that her every adventure teaches her something new about the world, and she’s a pro at staying connected with her friends around the globe. Handling the tweets, instas, and updates of Jetset Times, Taylor knows how to keeps our JST fanatics #happy!
Who She Is: Business Partnerships Associate
Why We Love Her: A master wordsmith, perpetual student, and thalassophile, Wenxi’s ultimate travel goal is to gain perspective, no matter where she goes. This has translated to a devoted presence on Jetset Times, where she contributes both on the frontline with tech-savvy articles, and on the back end by helping build Jetset’s partners. In her free time, she loves to bake pies, read up on latest astrophysics research, and sail on the beautiful SF Bay.
