Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Freelance writer and editor
Location Madison, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction I'm a freelance writer living in Madison, Wisconsin, specializing in food writing and personal profiles. I believe the social, celebratory and expressive aspect of food is one of the key things that makes humans human. If you ask me, the scientists ought to put it right up there with bipedalism and speech. All animals eat, but for us, the eternal quest for flavor and form is woven deep into who and what we are. That’s why I love to write about food, and people who love it. My work on food and other topics has appeared in publications including Wisconsin Trails, Isthmus, Madison Magazine, Corporate Report Wisconsin, and Dane County Kids. I was formerly editor-in-chief of Erickson Publishing, and was the first editor of Brava Magazine (orginally known as Anew). I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and I've lived in Philadelphia, Gainesville, Fla., and Los Angeles, where I worked in film production.
