I write about travel with a focus on food, art, culture, luxury travel, and quirky, off-beat locations.
I'm a frequent contributor to the travel and food sections of The Boston Globe. My writing has also been featured in The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, ShowBoats International, American Way Magazine, The Robb Report, Yankee Magazine, Modern Farmer, The Globe and Mail, The Huffington Post, 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.
