Professional Experience

In addition to being a food writer with a sense of humor (see: Gluten Is My Bitch); I write satire and parenting articles, sometimes at the same time. Other areas I've covered include sex and entertainment (music, book, TV and movie reviews.) My work at Radar, The Stir, Babble and Nerve typify my style.
