A little bit about me…

Denver, New York City, food, babies, travel, agriculture and chefs–these are the main topics I have been writing about for the past 10 years for all sorts of great publications such as Forbes Travel Guide, Today.com, Organic Life Magazine, Extra Crispy, Food Republic, Zagat and more.

Recently I moved back to Denver after 13 years in Brooklyn, New York, the city where I grew from a wide-eyed young adult to the mom (of almost two) I am today. While in the Big Apple I went to Brooklyn College and then got my MA at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. From there I started freelancing for various websites and newspapers and was the main food writer and restaurant critic for the New York Press until they folded in 2011.

Over the years I picked up work writing about dating in NYC for Time Out New York, profiles on New Yorkers for the Daily News, and national food trends for Today.com. I have covered the Aspen Food and Wine Festival for Forbes Travel Guide, traveled to Switzerland to learn about cheese and wandered the Amazon rain forest in Ecuador in search of tea.

Despite all the excitement and food-filled education I got in NYC, I was happy to return home after the birth of my son. Denver is a place with a new and booming restaurant and bar scene, a great craft beer culture and lot’s of outdoor fun. In between freelance writing gigs and traveling as much as possible, I find time to cook up a storm, which is still he main subject I¬†write about. You can also find me jotting away about travel, raising kids, liquor, hotels and whatever else strikes my fancy. I work at home in the quiet of my Denver apartment, save for when I am seeking adventure in far off places such as India, Peru, Ireland and Israel.
