Professional Experience

I'm a boots-on-the-ground food, wine, garden and tourism writer who also cooks and farms professionally in Washington wine country. As a chef, I write with an insider's knowledge about dining, food, cooking, winemaking, distilling and organic farming. I've spent many hours behind the scenes of wine dinners in Napa Valley, Seattle and across Washington state. My recipes and articles have been published online and in print for Washington State Wine Guide, Scenic WA, Lake Chelan Grape Growers Association, WINO Magazine.

Snapshots of charming corners in Washington State
An online article for Plank Media covering etiquette at the Korean dinner table. At the Korean dinner table, drinking etiquette is just as important as table manners. There are so many nuances that the challenge wasn't creating content, but conforming it to Plank's 5-Sections, 5-Point structure.


An excerpt from one of the four annual introductions I wrote for the Washington State Wine Guide - a state sponsored publication that wanted to look and sound fun. My content was vital to contrast the tightly phrased articles about wine and wineries in the rest of the guide.
