A little bit about me…

For 13 years I lived in Brooklyn, New York and during that time I got to explore the whole of the City That Never Sleeps, from Coney Island to Flushing, Queens to Fort Tryon Park. I was born in Manhattan, Kansas, and as my mother likes to say, “You started in the little apple and now live in the big apple.”   Lucky for me, my time in Kansas was short, 11 months, and then my family moved to Denver, where I lived until the age of 17.  From there I moved on to Berkeley, California with a head of bright blue hair and a job at a bakery.

Now, I have left my home of  Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and returned home to Denver, a place full of new restaurants, bars, a great craft beer scene and more fun and tasty things. In between freelance writing gigs and traveling as much as possible, I find time to cook up a storm–I love food!  Which is one of the main subjects I  write about, as well as wine, cocktails, travel, and now, since the birth of my son in September 2014, about raising a baby.

In December 2008 I received my M.A. from the City University Graduate School of Journalism and am a happy freelancer. I have written for many publications including Today.comForbes Travel Guide, Food Republic, newyork.com, Cherry Bombe Magazine, amNYMontage Magazine, and others. I have also started a new blog about eating with baby called Crumby Baby, though to be fair it’s not quite up to date.

Despite my joy at working at home, I am always seeking adventure and greater stories, and love to travel the world and write about the cultures I see and the food I eat. So far I have been around India, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, the all over the United States, Paris, Barcelona, and other pockets of Spain and Italy. No matter where I go,  I am eager to learn and grow in all experiences, and hopefully start incorporating my son in the adventures.
