Hi/ Hola/ გამარჯობა. I’m a Madrid-based travel, food, and culture writer and the co-author of Fodor’s Essential Spain 2019, Essential Spain 2020 (out in November 2019), and Portugal 2018 travel guides.
European travel, food, and wine, with a particular predilection for Spain and the Caucasus.
I've worn many hats— from waiter, to marketing exec, to sommelier. NYC is my second home.
Condé Nast Traveler, The Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, Lonely Planet, SAVEUR, National Geographic Traveler, National Geographic, The Daily Beast, Thrillist, AFAR, Travel + Leisure, Fodor's (online and print guides), Smithsonian Magazine, Atlas Obscura, Extra Crispy, EnRoute, Bloomberg, Serious Eats, OUT, Runner's World, Tasting Table, CNN Travel, Departures, Huffington Post et al.
A note to PR reps:
With few exceptions, I only cover Europe and the Caucasus. Send me any Spanish and Caucasus news, your most important European news (openings, game-changing initiatives, discoveries, etc.), and no North American, South American, Australian, African, or Asian news—unless you are extending an invitation or there is an important tie-in to Spain or the Caucasus.
