I am a food and travel writer based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I lived in Paris for six months while researching and photographing markets for the second edition of Markets of Paris (The Little Bookroom, 2012). Wherever I travel, I enjoy exploring markets because they’re fun and also a way to experience the local culture.
My work has been featured in numerous food and travel magazines and blogs. These include the Huffington Post, Afar, The Daily Meal, and France Today.
I frequently speak with groups about the markets in France. I have had the pleasure of presenting at the American Embassy in Paris, the American Library in Paris, the International Culinary Center in New York City, the French Cultural Center in Boston, and numerous other venues. Another tough assignment was serving as a judge for The Daily Meal’s 25 Best Restaurants in France and Monaco.
Some interviews I’ve done include Rick Steves (“Travel with Rick Steves”), Rudy Maxa’s Savvy Traveler, Morning Living show with Betsy & Brian (Martha Stewart Radio, Sirius XM), the Jordan Rich Show, and Lost in Cheeseland.
I also work as a book coach. Drawing upon my editorial experience with several publishing companies, I help clients break down the often daunting writing process into manageable chunks. My approach is based on helping clients hold their vision for a project while guiding them forward and bringing their focus to the immediate next step.
I have a B.A. from the University of Chicago and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing.
