MARY KONG-DEVITO, Founder, Content Strategist

Based in Washington, D.C., Mary grew up in New York City where her family’s restaurants were her playground.

After 13 years at The Mandarin Oriental and The Ritz-Carlton hotel groups where she worked with such notable guests as Barbra Streisand, Patrick Ewing, Vanessa Williams, Michael Stipe, LeVar Burton, and Jane Krakowski, Mary built a career in food writing.

Her work has been published in USA Today, The Washington Post, Eater, Washington City Paper, and more. An early adopter of digital media, she founded the dining site Girl Meets Food as a cover for her debilitating addiction to fried chicken, which was acquired in 2013. The site, not the chicken.

A serial entrepreneur with a drive to create, Mary was once named Washington Post’s “Favorite Local Foodie.” She launched Fatback Media in 2015 as a tribute to her love of bacon.

ANDREW LEE, Lead Digital Designer

Andrew attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, studying Web Design and New Media.

Andrew’s extensive experience in the print production industry spans a decade, with a skillset diversely equipped to find print, web, and motion graphic solution. With his punk rock and hippie college days long behind him, he has since moved back to his birthplace of New York City.

When he’s not staring endlessly at computer monitors, he can be found befriending cats, shooting pool, eating burritos, beatboxing, bowling, or photographing things in the city.

MORGAN CHEUNG,
Marketing Associate

Morgan is based in his hometown of New York City, where he worked as a journalist at Fox Corporation and The Brookline Tab. He graduated from Boston University’s College of Communication with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a concentration in International Relations.

His professional experience ranges from editorial writing to analytical research, social media management and even video content creation. While his prior experiences in the newsroom focused on hard news and international politics, he’s enthusiastic to put his diverse skillset to work, venturing out into the world of food and culture, eager to explore all the colors of the food spectrum with his taste buds.

When Morgan isn’t out in the field reporting or writing the next big-hit article, he enjoys skateboarding and headbanging to Black Sabbath. He also enjoys eating Japanese and Hawaiian food, which he deeply appreciates for their raw and natural characteristics, rich histories, and unique flavors.
