Writing & Clips

May 25, 2012 · 0 comments

With a background that includes litigation, management consulting and hi-tech business development, I love taking complex topics and breaking them down into easy to understand and compelling stories. I excel at, and really enjoy, helping clients clarify goals and implement changes. This may be through writing about things like choosing sustainable meats or seafood or dining out with food allergies. It may be training people on how to manage telecommuters or it could be speaking to a bloggers’ conference about optimizing social media and creating value for readers. My work has appeared in print (The Washington Post, Whole Foods Market Magazine; Culture: the Word on Cheese magazine, Edible Santa Barbara) and on line (Suite101.com Gourmet Food; GoNomad.com, Reuters, The Austin Statesman, The Chicago Sun Times News Group and more). I’ve written about everything from wine tours in Spain to movie premieres, travel, food, wine and social media.

Selected Clips:


The Washington Post

Food Allergy Sufferers Negotiate the Minefields of Dining Out

I wrote about dining out with food allergies.


From Cave to Cart to Cooking

I wrote about Terrance Brennan who made the cheese cart a familiar part of fine dining here in the US.





The Abalone Story

From Cold and Slow to Hot and Fast: The Abalone Story from Ocean to Plate

Consider the poor abalone. Precious, misunderstood and hunted to near extinction. It’s one of the oldest known creatures in existence. It’s been a part of California’s culinary and coastal heritage for thousands of years. Once plentiful all along the central and southern coast of California, its popularity here and abroad has threatened its very survival.



Canning Across America

Confessions of a Canning Virgin

I wrote about my somewhat fearful foray into canning.
