food & travel writer 


Madrid, Spain



Freelance writer; occasional tour guide, recipe tester, teacher, and consultant.

Co-author of Fodor’s Essential Spain 2019 and Portugal 2018 travel guides



I write about the places that make me hungriest with a certain predilection for the Caucasus, Portugal, France, and—por supuesto—Spain. I typically do not cover U.S. destinations. 



I've worn many hats— from waiter, to marketing exec, to sommelier. NYC is my second home.
