Food, drink and culture writer. Cookbook author.

I am an author with Random House, a seasoned journalist and writer specializing in food and drink. I have 16+ years experience and hold an M.F.A. in Creative Writing. I served as a Judge for the James Beard Media Awards in Wine, Spirits and Other Beverages (2011 and 2013). I'm currently a regular food and drink contributor for The Richmond Times Dispatch and Discover Richmond magazine.

I craft engaging stories that hook readers by producing high quality content and rigorously tested recipes for both print and online publications.  My work has also appeared in Extra Crispy, Taste, Tasting Table, NPR Food, Garden and Gun, USA Today, Better Homes and Gardens, Food Republic, Gadling, The Associated Press, Virginia Living and The Washington Post to name a few.
