I write about travel with a focus on food, art, culture, and quirky, off-beat locations.
I'm a frequent contributor to the travel and food sections of The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and have also been featured in the Los Angeles Times, American Way Magazine, Spirit Magazine, The Globe and Mail, and the literary magazine, Tin House. I'm a co-contributor to the travel column, Here, There, and Everywhere, appearing weekly in the Boston Globe.
A freelance writer with an MFA from Mass College of Art, I often publish my own photographs and illustrations to accompany my stories. My special interest—some might say obsession—is the world of oysters and shucking competitions.
