Professional Experience

A cookbook author and food photographer ("Poor Girl Gourmet: Eat in Style on a Bare-bones Budget, Andrews McMeel, 2010), food blogger, and freelance broadcast producer for the last 14 years, my food writing ranges from essays on topics such as canning, gardening, biodiversity, and small-scale farming, to detailed recipe instruction, and my broadcast producing background consists, for the most part, of large, complex projects with many moving parts, though I do enjoy smaller producing projects as well. In addition, my landscape photography has been licensed for use in home decor and greeting cards.
