Jodi Ettenberg

Jodi Ettenberg is a writer, photographer, and food-obsessed traveler exploring the world since she quit her job in April 2008. She founded Legal Nomads to tell the stories of the places she visits, often through food. She is also the author of The Food Traveler’s Handbook: How to Eat Cheap, Safe, and Delicious Food Anywhere in the World, and runs small-group food walks in Saigon, Vietnam during the winter months. She has been featured in the New York Times, National Geographic, BBC Travel, Singapore Airlines, CNN Travel and more. Prior to founding Legal Nomads, Jodi worked as a corporate lawyer in New York City for 5 years. She frequently speaks about social media strategy, food and travel, and storytelling. She gets the shakes when she goes too long without eating sticky rice.
