Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm currently a regular contributor to Great Ideas, the food section of PEOPLE.com, where I cover food, cooking, and (of course) celebrities and chefs. I also have close to 15 years' experience writing and editing all types of print and online content, mostly in-house at Conde Nast: I began my career as an editor at Epicurious and later worked as both a travel editor and contributing editor at BRIDES magazine, where I scouted honeymoon destinations and reported on food, party planning, beauty, and fashion. I've also blogged for BonAppetit.com and The Nest, and worked as a contributing writer for NYMag.com.

My passport has seen so much action (almost 30 countries) that I've had to have extra pages added. I love doing research and I'm also great at building relationships with sources, which helps me get smart, distinctive quotes from them.
