I’m a food and travel writer who has recently relocated to Upstate New York after living in Belgium. My work has appeared in over 40 publications like Travel + Leisure, National Geographic Traveler, Condé Nast Traveler, CNN, Tasting Table, Vogue, Robb Report, and many others

I studied history at Tulane University, but I’m a quirky New Englander at heart. After graduation, I hung around New Orleans and later worked in New York as a youth gardening instructor and cheesemonger. I finally started writing in Austin after getting acquainted with its (then) up-and-coming dining scene.  I also reported on local dining news as associate editor of Eater D.C. while living in the Washington, D.C. area. As you can see, I’ve done lots of odd jobs along the way. Writing is the only thing that has ever stuck. 

As a travel writer, I’ve interviewed an octogenarian tofu maker in Japan, eaten breakfast on the savanna in Kenya, tried scorpion-infused mezcal in Mexico, unearthed obscure cookie recipes in Alabama, and sipped rare cognac in France.
