Work It

I’m a freelance food writer and content specialist seeking work in the food space and beyond. My work experience includes editorial, content marketing and social media management.

I’m a freelance contributor to Forbes.com, covering food and agricultural policy.

Learning to fly

I have a B.A. in journalism from Penn State University, where I worked at The Daily Collegian, Penn State’s award-winning independent newspaper.

My first general assignment was covering a chicken wing contest. I covered theatre, film, dance and health, worked in page design and later became the newspaper’s first food reporter.

Maybe that’s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind, no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom... is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.
— Anthony Bourdain

around the World

I'm on the outreach committee for Central Brooklyn Food Co-op, a 100% member-owned food store helping ensure access to affordable, fresh food for Central Brooklyn’s mostly POC, low- and moderate-income households. Membership is open to all.

In Winter 2017, I spent a month in Lyon, France and Turin, Italy to learn about local gastronomy. Read about my eats here.

I've taken many food-fueled journeys to Philadelphia, New Orleans, Chicago, L.A., Las Vegas and my hometown, Pittsburgh. I've eaten in Nashville, Memphis, Tupelo, Jackson, Indianola, San Francisco, Seattle, Honolulu, Juneau and Skagway. I want to visit Charleston and Atlanta next.

I visit restaurants, cafés, bars, bodegas, breweries, wineries, chocolatiers and grocery stores and talk to people everywhere.

Find me at food events around NYC and working in DUMBO and Central Brooklyn during the week.

Let’s meet and eat!
