Marian Liu

Marian Liu has been nicknamed the “Asian Zooey Deschanel,” a quirky soul whose passion is journalism. She’s the online entertainment editor for The Sun Sentinel, running the new entertainment site called She’s covered everything from music to technology for The Seattle Times, San Jose Mercury News, Los Angeles Times, Oakland Tribune, Detroit Free Press and Source Magazine - interviewing everyone from Jet Li to Katy Perry. Most of all, Liu is passionate about communicating the needs of the communities she represents: “young, immigrant and female.” She’s a perpetual klutz (whose other nickname is “tank,” because she runs into everything). For fun, she makes jewelry, draws in charcoal and plays video games.
