I started my career as a lawyer and transitioned to journalism after working in some of New York City's most acclaimed restaurants. For the past 20 years, I’ve been reporting on food from every angle—  restaurants and chefs, trends and lifestyle, food policy, hunger and childhood nutrition, and food justice.​


Lately, I have been reporting on the Coronavirus for Food & Wine. In April, I revived The Strong Buzz , which I founded in 2003, and was one of the industry's first and celebrated  restaurant blogs!

I have a full-service copywriting studio for the food & beverage industry where I provide all sorts of copywriting—website, bio, origin story, newsletters and more. Email me for more information.​

My cookbook with Akhtar Nawab entitled Good For You, came out in Fall 2020 from Chronicle. 


My writing has gotten some recognition; I was included in The Best Food Writing of 2016 for the article I wrote, "Why Bakers Have Serious Mother Issues, and for Sloppy Joes in The New York Times in 2002.
