About me

Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Freelance Writer
Location New York, but my heart was left in New Orleans, United States
Introduction SJLD, creator of, is a lot of things. A writer on the brink; a gourmand (as opposed to a gourmet) and gastronome; an Oxford comma fan; a lover of asides; an editor in the worst way (a purse isn't fully stocked without a fine-tipped red pen); a travel junkie; a kindred spirit; a Southern Yankee or New Orleanian New Yorker; and a bit of a snarky smartass. Back story? My unnatural devotion to fine food stems from having literally grown up in a restaurant kitchen, but being the Food Editor for Where Y'at Magazine and writing for various publications and web sites about all things edible hasn't helped me overcome this crippling addiction. But like any good junkie, I'm hellbent on the fix and don't care to be cured. Also like a good junkie, I will stab you for your noodles--and that's no joke.

What kind of tape is best for creating a sculpture?

Duct tape. After all, if you can't duct it, f* it, right?
