About me

 

"Eaters...must understand that eating takes place inescapably in the world, that is inescapably an agricultural act, and that how we eat determines, to a considerable extent, how the world is used." —Wendell Berry

I am a skilled reporter, writer, and editor with a primary focus on the food system. My expertise is in telling stories that show how we produce, sell, buy and consume food impacts individual lives, global health, culture, and the environment, for publications like Civil Eats, Eater, and Tasting Table. I also have extensive past experience writing and editing lifestyle stories on nutrition, fitness, and general health for publications like Well+Good, Cosmopolitan, Furthermore, and Clean Plates.

I have a master's degree in Magazine Journalism from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Northeastern University.
