Professional Experience

A well-published freelancer for New York and international publications, I've covered everything from tango in Argentina to truffle hunting in Croatia to distilling Remy Martin cognac in France. I'm a "lifestyle" writer with a great sense of poetry to my writing, whether it's a travel, spa or food-focused piece. Please visit for more information, and for my travel blog about adventures with cheese and sheep in Croatia.
